Chorus to perform at Keene Unitarian Universalist Church

Croatian, Bulgarian and Georgian love songs and a mother’s lament, a South Africa song of protest and for “beautiful rain,” contemporary shape note hymns, an original Bayside Lament with a twist, and a slightly drunken Shaker melody. All are part of the repertoire of the Keene World Harmony Chorus, and will be performed on May 1 at 7:30 p.m. in a short concert at the Unitarian Universalist Church parish hall.

The World Harmony Chorus is a small multi-age choir drawn together by their love of singing and particularly by the opportunity to sing traditional folk songs and vocal styles from around the world. The chorus was started two years ago as a class led by Will Thomas Rowan and Lynn Mahoney Rowan of Marlborough, Vt. The couple recently auditioned in New York City and were selected to be music ambassadors in the prestigious American Music Abroad program for the coming year with their vocal quartet Windborne.

The concert is free but donations are appreciated, appropriate for all ages, and will be followed by light refreshments.
