Unicorn Singers Celebrate Their 40th Anniversary on Sunday April 14 at 4 pm with “American Kaleidoscope”

Three original Unicorn Singers 2019

All are invited to come experience the free rowdy spirit and the beauty of the Old West—and other American moods and places—on Sunday, April 14 at 4pm when The Unicorn Singers and the Broad Cove Chorale, present “American Kaleidoscope.”

Founded by Margo Euler in her Hingham residence, the Unicorn Singers have been performing a variety of choral music for the South Shore under her direction for the last 40 years.

Hingham residents currently singing in the group include Kathleen Almand, Lynn Anderson, Ed Bartholomew (a founding member), Sally Davenport, and Bill and Kathy Reardon.

The program, which marks the 40th anniversary of their first joint concert in 1979, features 20th-century American composers Aaron Copland, Daniel Pinkham, Elliott Carter, Libby Larsen, Randall Thompson and others.

Audiences will be entertained by a quartet of “ruckus makers”, dancers in Libby Larsen’s lively “The Settling Years” and pieces from Aaron Copland’s “The Tender Land” will bring a more reflective mood.

Soloists in Pinkham’s “Wedding Cantata” are Karin Foley of East Bridgewater and Robert Ruplenas of Hanover. The choruses will be accompanied by pianists Lenae Badger of Scituate and Dawn MacGarvey of Duxbury, and also by a woodwind quintet. A festive reception follows the concert.

Tickets are available online at bcc-us.org ($20) or at the door ($25) at The Inly School, 46 Watch Hill Road, Scituate. For more information call 781-749-0162.
