Williamsburg Choral Guild Summer Sings - Britten: Rejoice in the Lamb & Hymn to St. Cecilia
Conducted by Rebecca Tyree, Interim Director of Choral Activities and Assistant Professor of Choral Music Education at Virginia Commonwealth University. These works set to music two poems. " Rejoice in the Lamb" by Christopher Smart is a distinctive work praising God and all things created by God. "Hymn to St. Cecilia" by W. H. Auden honors the Patron Saint of Music on whose day Britten was born. Summer Sings is a program sponsored by the Williamsburg Choral Guild that features three different sing-alongs of great choral masterpieces, each with a guest conductor, soloists and piano accompaniment. These consecutive Wednesday evening events in June start at 7:00 p.m. with registration and announcements, and singing begins at 7:30. All programs take place at Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists at 3051 Ironbound Road, between Route 5 and Jamestown Road. The Guild welcomes singers of all abilities as well as those who just want to listen. Sight-reading familiarity is a plus, but a love of community music-making is the only requirement for would-be songsters and choral music fans.June 27, 2012

American Furniture: From Virginia to Vermont
This exhibition in the Elizabeth Ridgely and Miodrag Blagojevich Gallery highlights pieces from three regions: Eastern Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New England. While early furniture forms and styles from these areas were similar during the late 17th through the early 19th centuries, the interpretation and the popularity of designs varied due to differences in local economies, trade settlement patterns, and the religious and cultural backgrounds of the inhabitants. A section on painted furniture further demonstrates regional styles and decorative influences.April 01, 2012 - December 31, 2013
