Fall 2018 Season

LOVE!

Now, perhaps more than ever, we need our hearts to be open to love.

Join The Mystic Chorale in this fall’s LOVE! season, led Nick Page, as we bring alive the full spectrum of emotion… from the sweet blush of a new crush to the misery of a break-up.  The music will range from the gentle caress of a Celtic ballad to the rock-out glory of the classic “Why Do Fools Fall In Love?” from Katy Perry’s “Firework”  to an early John Lennon love song to a rousing hit from the musical HAMILTON.  We will sing a medley of lullabies from around the world, and we’ll get our audience singing Doo-Wop. The women will belt out Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” and the men will move hearts with “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling.”

In addition to several rich solo opportunities, this season Mystic will have a smaller auditioned chorus, which will meet before a few rehearsals to learn James Taylor’s “Lonesome Road” which will be performed as part of our larger concert.

Our ace band will be led by guitarist extraordinaire, Gary Backstrom.  As is our custom, we will have our audiences singing along and dancing in the aisles!

10 weeks of rehearsals begin on Tuesday, September 4th, 7:30-9:30 pm at First Parish Unitarian, 630 Mass Ave., Arlington Center. Concert weekend is November 17th and 18th, at Converse Hall, Tremont Temple, 88 Tremont St., in Boston.

No concert CD will be produced from this season.  Many of the songs are under royalties.  We are purchasing permission to perform these songs, however the fees to sell CDs with these songs on them are prohibitively expensive.

There will be a traditional practice CD available as well as audio files on the website.
