Upcoming: Nantucket, August 2019
The Cornell University Chamber Singers are celebrating our second annual summer residency in Nantucket from August 12th -18th to get involved in the community, learn about the history of the island, and share our passion for music.
St. Paul’s Episcopal Church will be our base for this week, generously offering homestays for singers and rehearsal spaces for the choir. In addition to an Evensong service on Tuesday and a full-length concert on Friday, we will also be participating as a choir for their Sunday morning service.
We will also have the privilege of visiting the Museum of African American History, where we will have the opportunity to learn, ask questions, and be surrounded by the incredible history of the African American community on Nantucket, culminating in an evening performance at the historic African Meeting House.
We are accepting donations at the Evensong Service towards refugee assistance on the island, at the African Meeting House to benefit the Museum of African American History, and at our full-length concert to support our own choir, so we can continue to serve as ambassadors of the arts at Cornell University.
