Spring Starts NOW :)

Want to learn a new instrument, or get back to one you used to play? Concord Community Music School is the place for weekly lessons in every instrument from bassoon to bouzouki, plus voice lessons for those who want to take their singing to the next level -- even if you "start at the very beginning." Studying music brings the discipline of practicing regularly, the delight of experiencing music through movement and song, the confidence gained from performance, and the friendships made through ensembles. The Music School's multi-level curriculum provides a well-rounded musical education, including weekly lessons, regular evaluation, and frequent performance and ensemble opportunities. All ages and abilities are welcome. To learn more, give us a call at 603-228-1196.
Raise Your Voice!

The new semester is starting, and with it more opportunities to make music at Concord Community Music School! If you love to sing, check out these free "Open Sing" events happening 2/1 and 2/7:

WOWS Party & Open Sing
Thursday, February 1, 6:00-7:00pm
The WOWS (Women of Wall Street) singing group at Concord Community Music School is looking for new voices! This fun & dynamic all-ages a cappella group invites singers to come to our first rehearsal of the spring semester for a free open-sing party - to enjoy refreshments, meet our director Victoria Cole, and try out our voices on a few of the tunes we may be learning in the months to come. To all women singers with some sight-reading ability, especially those who miss singing in a group (we see you, former college a cappella peeps!) please join us for a fun night of laughter and song at our WOWS Party & Open Sing, this Thursday, February 1, at 6:00pm.  For information, call 603-228-1196.

Canterbury Singers Party & Open Sing
Wednesday, February 7, 7:00-8:15pm
Raise your voice with the Canterbury Singers at Concord Community Music School! This inclusive, harmonizing singing ensemble rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8:15. The Singers perform at Concord Community Music School events as well as Canterbury Shaker Village, with whom we partner for their special historical and arts events. The Canterbury Singers are directed by Kathryn Southworth, dean of students & faculty at the Music School and an accomplished pianist, accompanist, and music instructor.  Anyone interested learning more and singing with the Canterbury Singers, please join us for an Open Sing on Wednesday, Feb. 7, at 7:00pm, at Concord Community Music School. Refreshments will be served. 

Love & Music in the Air at February Bach's Lunches

This February, share your affection at Concord Community Music School, with two free Bach's Lunch programs on the topic of love & music.
Matt Langley
On Thursday, February 1, Music School faculty member and jazz musician Matt Langley presents his Bach's Lunch Lecture, "The Great American Songbook - A Jazz Love Affair." Jazz musicians hear the term "Great American Songbook" all the time in reference to certain tunes in the repertoire. What is the Great American Songbook? Can one buy a copy?  Who are the composers? What happens when jazz musicians play instrumental versions of "songs"? Learn and sing along to the songs everyone loves, as Langley explores these questions and more.
Peggo & Kent
The following Thursday, February 8, brings Peggo Horstmann Hodes and Kent Allyn in their ever-popular annual Valentine-themed Bach's Lunch Concert, "P.S. I Love You: Love Letters." The original 1934 song, "P.S. I Love You," was written by Johnny Mercer and covered by everyone from Rudy Vallee to Bob Dylan. The Beatles took their cue from Mercer and released their own hit song by the same name in 1962. Peggo and Kent will perform songs from Mercer and the Beatles, as well as other songs about love letters.
Bach's Lunch programs are free and open to the public, and take place from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. on the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through May, in the Music School's Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord.
