Local Vocals for Shelter
Three area a cappella groups will perform a benefit concert, "Gimme Shelter," for Groundworks Collaborative on Saturday, April 16 at 7:30 p.m. at the Hooker Dunham Theatre, Main St., Brattleboro. Groundworks offers the second largest food shelf in Vermont and a 30-bed shelter, as well as a seasonal shelter from November through April, a day shelter, and a youth shelter in Bellows Falls.
The three vocal groups, who vary in their musical styles, are House Blend, Big Woods Voices, and Singcrony Trio. House Blend, formed in 2006, is an assembly of 20 veteran singers from Vermont and New Hampshire, devoted to the collective exploration of the many styles of a cappella songs from around the world as well as through-out musical history. Singcrony Quartet produced the first Gimme Shelter concert last year, which benefited the Baptist Church's efforts with the Overflow Shelter.
Tickets are only at the door, with a $10-$20 and up donation suggested.
