Voices from the Heart sings what they feel and feels what they sing with 200 a cappella women's voices on November 17 at 4 and 7:30 p.m. at South Church, 292 State St. in Portsmouth, directed by Joanne Connolly. The concert explores The Circle Unbroken....singing songs from our ‘One World!’ “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” is a new take on the traditional American song calling us to be a more respectful, connected world...where everyone is invited into ‘the circle.’
Connolly says, “After our three-week singing and humanitarian tour of South Africa this summer we return to our home stage in Portsmouth with two great South African tunes: ”Pata Pata” made famous by the world renown Mariam Makeba, and the song and dance, “Emarabini”. We include these songs in a circle of American music: remembering Aretha with “Natural Women”; singing to end gun violence with a Dixie Chicks piece; and dedicating a traditional Jewish song of remembrance, “Hashinvenu”, to the latest victims of gun violence in Pittsburgh. Our songs will uplift, delight, honor and celebrate, all in one evening.” Kent Allyn, Jon Booth and Rob Kneeland will be on hand with piano, bass and drums to ramp up the beat. Don't miss Voices from the Heart Fall Concert, “The Circle Unbroken.”
