The Shirley-Eustis House and Greater Boston House Concerts will be presenting the vocal quartet Anthology in “Hot Music for a Cold Afternoon,” an eclectic musical mix of folk, jazz, and classical.
Anthology’s varied songs never fails to delight audiences. They will be singing arrangements of American folk music, such as “Frobisher Bay”; some swinging jazz numbers such as “Java Jive”; cutting-edge classical selections; and a couple of humorous numbers as well. The one constant is that four women’s voices make all the music!
The afternoon concert starts at 2pm on Sunday January 29, 2012. A Meet-The-Artists Reception will follow the performance.
More about Anthology
Anthology is a professional quartet of enchanting women’s voices. Their expansive variety of music is presented with the fine polish of classical training and an effervescent whimsy that rises from an enthusiasm for all styles of performance. Anthology’s repertoire is a collection of classical choral music, hot jazz, Renaissance polyphony, world folk traditions, and music from the razor’s edge of local Boston compositions. Anthology sings fresh new arrangements of old classics, discovering exciting new repertoire in children’s songs, TV anthems, popular music, and anything that inspires them. We hope you’ll enjoy Anthology’s eclectic, a cappella four-part delights!
Anthology is Michelle Vachon, Vicky Reichert, Anney Gillotte, and Allegra Martin.
“The voices of four women resonated throughout Shirley’s Historic Meetinghouse and sent shivers up our spines. We jumped in a unanimous standing ovation…If you ever have the opportunity to hear Anthology perform, run- don’t walk- and bring all your friends because it will blow you away!” – Dawn McCall for The Shirley Volunteer
“These women know how to rock the house with kickass pop tunes, and make you swoon with their lush purple jazz chords. They can do it all… Pure tones, ringing chords and astonishing ability to drop from the most unlikely places into a perfect absolute unison.” David Traugot for The Contemporary A Cappella Society
