Bach’s Lunch Concert: Canterbury Singers: Goin’ Home – A Christmas Journey

December 8, 2022 @ 12:10 pm - 12:50 pm


The Canterbury Singers share the glad tidings of the holiday season to all with this program of American folk tune favorites, some of our favorite Shaker tunes, and traditional carol singing for all.

About the artists:

Kathryn Southworth, the Music School’s dean of students & faculty and director of the Canterbury Singers, holds a B.M. in Piano Performance from Oberlin Conservatory and an M.M. in Vocal Accompanying and Coaching from the University of Illinois, where she was staff accompanist under the tutelage of acclaimed accompanist John Wustman. She has been a collaborative pianist for Opera North, Dartmouth College, Plymouth State University, and Boston Ballet, and has also served as a musical ambassador to Costa Rica. Having worked with many theater and choral groups in New England, Kathy is currently music director and organist for Canterbury United Community Church. Former faculty positions include St. Paul’s School and Plymouth State University.

The Canterbury Singers partner with the Canterbury Shaker Village to present authentic Shaker music, expanded by arrangements of American folk songs, music of early America, and inspired arrangements by a variety of composers. One of the very few non-auditioned, high quality professionally directed choral experiences for mixed voices (men and women blended ensemble) in the Capital Area.

Members include: Carla Biddle, Frederick Brewster, Helen Ford, Robert Harrington, Ron Herman, Mark Hewitt, Sarah Kinter, Jim Miller, Susan Papinsick, Glen Rodgers, Kitty Rodgers, Charles Sanborn, Lawrence Shaltis, Don Swearer, Nancy Swearer, Pat Watson, Susan Weiss, and Nancy Wilson
