Rain date Saturday, July 24 at 6pm.
Join us for our third outdoor summer Concert on the Green featuring The Beacons on the green outside La Grua Center. Major support for the summer Concerts on the Green has been provided by the Stonington Village Improvement Association.
In this concert Revell Carr will be presenting songs from his research into nineteenth century sea chanteys and other maritime music. This repertoire will include songs from the Pacific whaling industry that are featured in his first book, including work songs, ballads, songs from the music hall and minstrel stage, and at least one song in Hawaiian. He will also offer several songs from his recent research into the musical history of Stonington. Everyone is invited to sing along and join in for the choruses!
