The concert, titled “Under the Calico Tree,” is a celebration of folk songs, art songs and novelty songs for young voices, featuring works by Bob Chilcott, John David, Franz Schubert and a world premier by David Vernier. Each choir sings separately, and then joins for a combined choir of over 60 voices.
