Cool Sounds A Cappella
Zion Lutheran Church, 74 First St., Pittsfield, MA
LENOX, MA. — The Cantilena Chamber Choir will present a concert called New Sounds a Cappella on Sunday, March 17, at 3p.m. at the Zion Lutheran Church, 74 First St. in Pittsfield, MA .
Cool Sounds A Cappella will introduce new and innovative a cappella music to the general public in the newly renovated wonderful acoustics of Zion Lutheran’s new sanctuary that lends itself perfectly to both “classical” and also contemporary music (yet more sophisticated than typical college a cappella) with an appeal to a general audience. The Choir will venture into new territory- music from Cuba with ear catching rhythms, new and sophisticated arrangements of Billy Joel’s music, and a tribute to Stephen Sondheim including music from Company and Sunday in the Park with George! Berkshire Theater Group’s Haley Aguero, star of Music Man and last summer’s Tarzan at the Colonial Theater is the featured guest on the program.
Admission is by suggested donation of $15 thanks to a grant from the Pittsfield Cultural Council and the Feigenbaum Foundation. Portions of the proceeds go Zion Lutheran’s Laundry Love in support of laundry expenses for the needy. Zion Lutheran Church is located at 74 First St. in Pittsfield.

It is also a two-time winner of the prestigious Choral Arts New England’s Alfred Nash Patterson Award for unique programming.
