Exciting day today as we received work from 15 artists for the Bass Rocks Golf Club Art Show now going into its 5th year! The official public opening is May 31st at 6PM. We hope all the GMG friends will join us. Would sure love to have someone volunteer to photograph our artists with their works of art like Manny did a few years back for us. Here are a few pics from today to pique your interest!!

The Honors Youth Choir of Chorus North Shore is having their spring concert “Songs Of Spring” at Shalin Liu Performance Center on Friday, April 27 at 7:00 PM
Tickets are $15 and are available at www.rcmf.org or 978 546 7391
Artist Director Sonja Dahlgren Pryor says “The children are excited and so am I because not only are we appearing in this very beautiful venue but we are performing right across the street from the Congregational Church where it all began for Chorus North Shore 80 years ago.”
The program includes songs in celebration of spring, sea shanties and music by Mozart, Aaron Copeland, Handel and Rutter
The Honors Youth Choir of Chorus North Shore is a fully funded program allowing children aged 10 through high school the opportunity to learn and perform choral masterworks along with Chorus North Shore, and present extraordinary concerts on their own.From its founding, the Honors Youth Choir has met several goals:
— to provide an avenue for young singers to learn basic vocal techniques
and ear training
— to introduce young singers to a life-long love of choral music
— to offer an opportunity for a children’s choir to work with a premier adult
chorus and orchestra
— to reach out to a new audience in the communities we serve
The Honors Youth Choir is selected by audition, and members must attend scheduled rehearsals and concerts. The Chorus North Shore artistic director, Sonja Dahlgren Pryor and executive director, Mary Sepich bring their experience as life long educators and musicians to the leadership, planning and development of this special group.
