The last time that the Beaver Valley Choral Society had made an appearance on A.M. Beaver County was March 11, when they were preparing to perform their Lenten concerts and talking about celebrating 100 years with a trip to perform at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Then nothing happened. We know why nothing happened.
Fast forward four months, and the Choral Society is set to return with their annual “Summer Sing” gathering, in which community members can learn new music and reconstitute their vocal skills during this 3-day event from July 27 to July 29.
BVCS President Lee Pfiefer, Artistic Director Ray Rotuna, and Associate Director (and chief Summer Sing organizer) Sharon Burchill joined Matt Drzik on A.M. Beaver County to discuss the 2020 Summer Sing, particularly the Appalachian theme of traditional music that will be sung, and the parameters of gathering via Zoom to ensure safety for Summer Sing participants.
The trio then gave a small preview of the singing to be sung as they performed a rendition of “God Bless America”, featuring Beaver County Radio’s Mark Peterson on the bass part (or so we believe).
The 2020 Summer Sing will take place July 27-29, and more information about the event can be found by clicking here.
