WESTMINSTER WEST -- The Windborne Quartet announces a concert series of traditional and contemporary vocal music from around the world, with two local stops -- the first on Wednesday, Jan. 2, at 7:30 p.m., at the Westminster West Congregational Church and then on Jan. 10 at 7:30 p.m., at The Stone Church, 210 Main St., in Brattleboro.
A group of vocal chameleons, the members grew up singing with Village Harmony and their years with the Renewal Chorus have deepened their connection with one another and with the music. Now, they draw upon their collective four decades of experience as performers and teachers to create a program of songs spanning several centuries, including music from Corsica, the Republic of Georgia, the Basque region, Bulgaria and the United States.
Winborne is Lynn Mahoney Rowan, Will Thomas Rowan and Lauren Breunig, who have sung together for years as Windborne Trio. They are joined this winter by fellow Renewal Chorus singer Jeremy Carter-Gordon.
All four have traveled extensively with Village Harmony, Northern Harmony and Renewal, leading workshops and giving concerts.
