For their upcoming concerts, “Summer Sky”, on Saturday, July 9th and Sunday, July 10th, both at 7:30, ‘Leven has devised an evocative “Book of Hours”. In collaboration with guitarist, John Hicks, they will bring us through the summer’s day – from sunrise into the starry night – with their percussive rhythms, close harmonies, catchy lyrics and delivery, and their imaginative way of combining talent and taste.
On Saturday, July 9th, a surprise mutual event promises an especially dazzling connection! The “Summer Sky” concert ends at just the hour when the Gloucester Area Astronomy Club will be setting up their high-powered lenses at Halibut Point. Concert–goers are invited to join others at this ideal viewing spot and, at day’s end, to be “lost in the stars”!
Then, on Sunday, July 10th at 7:30 at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Rockport, a repeat concert will be sponsored by “Music for Food” , a musician-led initiative for local hunger relief. All proceeds of the Sunday concert will be donated to The Open Door.
Don’t miss these very special evenings.
‘Leven is an ensemble of Cape Ann women who perform dynamic songs of various times and cultural traditions. They have been a favorite with local audiences since 1992 when a group of eleven enlightened ladies ﬁrst met at 111 Washington Street in the eleventh month of the year, under the leavening inﬂuence of founder, Dawn Pratson. Their eclectic repertoire serves the community in both sacred and secular ceremonies, theatrical productions, fund raisers, seasonal festivities, children’s events, and private gatherings. The singers’ collective experience covers a broad spectrum of interests and avocations in the arts, education, travel, sports administration, interior painting and design, business management, law, family life,wildlife, spiritual study and leadership, and community service. Currently, two founding members of ‘Leven, Pat Maloney-Brown and Caroline Haines, carry on with Sue Bonior, Anne Hyde, Kristina Martin and Sheryl Reed, as they lift audiences of all ages in the original group’s refreshing spirit of light, life…and oo-la-la!
