Water Gap Singers present

“An English Spring”

with piano and chamber orchestra

The Water Gap Singers invite you to have a look at life in a Victorian-era English town on Sunday, May 19, 2024. The event, presented at the First Presbyterian Church, 1 Main Street in Blairstown begins at 4 p.m. with a reception following.

The concert includes musical looks at works of John Milton, William Blake, Rudyard Kipling and William Shakespeare, a community chorus enjoying traditional favorites and a visit with the local church choir.

Classic composers represented in the program include Ralph Vaughan Williams, Gustav Holst, Hubert Parry, Roger Quilter and G. F. Händel.

Maestro Joe Mello wants everyone to know that the public is invited to spend a delightful afternoon in the English countryside with the Water Gap Singers.

The concert is free, with a free-will offering gratefully accepted.

This is a great opportunity to have a taste of what life could have sounded like in Victorian times without the bother of time or distance travel. Tea available after the concert.

Funding has been made possible, in part, by the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Division.
