Coventry Singers Program to Honor America

The Coventry Singers

Blogger's Note: The following was provided by the Coventry Singers.

The Coventry Singers present their spring concert “We the People,” a concert
celebrating and honoring America. 

After a particularly divisive election season, an inspirational concert about the goodness of this great country and the aspiration of peace in our world seems particularly appropriate. 

 The selection of music promises goose bumps and teary eyes.

Selections include patriotic music such as "America the Beautiful" and "Battle Hymn of the Republic," traditional American folk songs including "Shenandoah" and "Every Night When The Sun Goes Down," and gospel and hymn tunes including "We Shall Walk Through the Valley in Peace" and "Simple Gifts."

The Coventry Singers, a choir of about 40 voices, is entering its 45th year providing beautiful music to the Pottstown area. 

They have performed with Reading Choral Society and the Pottstown Symphony. 

Director Hannah Knauss, a music teacher at Interboro School District, was named the 2017 PMEA Outstanding Young Music Educator. 

 Nadine Lydic is piano accompanist.

For the first time, the choir will be performing at the newly restored State Theater in Boyertown which seems fitting for a concert celebrating Americana.

Performances take place Saturday April 22nd at 7 p.m. at The Boyertown State Theater, 61 N. Reading Ave, Boyertown, and Sunday April 23rd at 3 p.m. at Cedarville United Methodist Church, 1092 Laurelwood Road, North Coventry. 

The concerts are free and open to the public. 

A freewill offering will be accepted. For more information about the Coventry Singers, visit their website or find them on Facebook at Coventry Singers-Pottstown, Pa.
