Mystic Chorale's presents 'Together' Nov. 30

Together: Fall 2021 concert

UPDATED Nov. 17: Mystic Chorale has held its last rehearsal at First Parish Unitarian before its Nov. 30 concert, "Together." 

The event celecelebrates the chorus’s return to singing live on Tuesday, Nov. 30, at 7:30 at Cary Hall in Lexington.

Directed by Nick Page and featuring Donnell Patterson on piano, a smaller but stalwart chorus brings back some of Mystic’s favorite songs of celebration, including the Miriam Makeba hit, Pata Pata, with returning guest Nthabi Thakadu. 

Exploring the diversity of choral music, Mystic sings Glory to God from Handel's Messiah along with Nick Page’s arrangement of Joey Weisenberg’s Kol HaNeshama, and Nthabi leads the moving Gospel prayer I Need You to Survive. The chorus honors Ysaye Barnwell with her arrangements of Power! Lord! and Steal Away, which provide moments of singular might. The concert closes with Donnell’s soul-stirring arrangement of Every Day Is a Day of Thanksgiving, featuring returning soloist Louise Grasmere.

The public is invited to experience what Mystic Chorale does best… singing from the heart, singing as community, making the world a better place, one song at a time.

Note: Safety is Mystic’s first priority: Proof of vaccination is required of all in attendance, along with spaced-out seating and masks throughout the performance

Tickets available at mysticchorale.org/concerts/fall-2021-concert-together/  

  • $20 general admission
  • $10 live streaming access
The program, includes Ysaye Barnwell’s “Power Lord” and "Steal Away,” Mystic favorite “Every Day is a Day of Thanksgiving,” the life-affirming Gospel anthem “I Need You to Survive,” a four-part arrangement of Joey Weisenberg’s “Kol Ha Neshamahand a challenging arrangement of “Glory to God” from Handel’s “Messiah.” The song “Together,” with its reggae-infused vibe, celebrates the season’s theme.

The talented Nthabi Thakadu returns as guest artist, reprising the rousing South African “Pata Pata,” and Ruth Roper returns as rehearsal pianist.

For those who wish to participate from afar or who simply aren’t ready for live singing, there is the option to join as a virtual singer. The rehearsals and concert will be live-streamed and recorded, and the recordings will be posted on the Mystic Chorale website a few days later. All singers will receive PDF files of the music and access to the practice recordings. 

Mystic Chorale is committed to offering singers a full season. Should live singing become unsafe, the chorus has exciting plans for an alternate online season of building community by fostering the abundant creativity within everyone -- all safe and fun.
