The Wilton Singers are On The Road Again! In their first live performance in a year and a half, their return to the stage feels even more timely with a collection of music that promises to transport the audience around the world.
“This was originally our Spring program theme prior to the pandemic,” explains music director, Kevin Cotellese. “Now that things are hopefully returning to normal, it seemed appropriate to celebrate the idea of traveling again.”
The concert runs the musical gamut, including a visit to England with the classic choral work “If Ye Love Me” by 16th century composer Thomas Tallis and pop tunes by the Beatles. If you're a fan of golden age musicals, you won’t want to miss their medley of songs from South Pacific.
While it takes place at their usual venue - the WEPCO complex, 48 New Canaan Road, Wilton, Conn - in a departure from tradition, the performance will be outside in the courtyard. Guests are asked to bring their own chair to spread out for festival-style seating.
Tickets for “On the Road Again” are on sale now. They can be purchased online at WiltonSingers.org. Seating area opens at 6:30 pm and the concert begins at 7 pm. In the event of rain, the concert will be moved to Sunday, June 27th.
The Wilton Singers is a 501(c)(3) organization that was founded to provide an outlet for adult participation in small ensemble singing, to support the Wilton High School choral program, and to foster an interest in choral singing within the community. Proceeds from their concerts support two scholarships that are presented each spring to graduating Wilton High School seniors who have demonstrated music leadership within the coral program at WHS.
