Holiday concert presented by Angel Choir and MasterSingers

The combined choruses of the Angel Choir and MasterSingers of Greenwich will perform together in a holiday concert at the Diamond Hill United Methodist Church at 521 E. Putnam Avenue, Cos Cob, on Wednesday, Dec. 17, at 7:30 p.m. The concert of seasonal music will feature eight crowd-pleasing sing-alongs, three songs by soloists and several numbers by the chorus. Both groups were founded and are conducted by the internationally-lauded Pamela Kuhn.

The more senior of Ms. Kuhn’s two groups, the Angel Choir, was formed in 2010, and is dedicated to providing restorative support and inspiration to cancer patients and survivors through musical performance. Ms. Kuhn, who has been called the “pied piper of singers,” launched the MasterSingers in September 2014 and continues to attract new members with the slogan “where singing is our passion.” The MasterSingers ensemble includes professional singers with solo performing careers, music school graduates and seasoned veterans of area choruses.

As music director, Ms Kuhn has been establishing a new level of connection between singers, the audience and the community with thematic and theatrical performance art.

Members of the ensemble include, Amy-Louise Barber, Janeen Bjork, Blake Blair, Starr Caswell, Carolyn Cleveland, Marsha DeSouza, David DeWahl, Barbara Donino, Ellen Gribben Bornet, Dan Hague, Lane Johnson, Christopher Jones, Anne Kennedy, Fenella Kiley, Sherry Krieger, Lynette Lyon, Sue McClenachan, Wendy Mages, Barbara Occhino, Annette Ott, Joan Pankosky, Michele Russell, Clare Stone, Dan Swartz, Robyn M. Whittingham and Carol Willson.

Noted pianist David Holkeboer will accompany the group.

The MasterSingers chorus made its first public appearance at the Greenwich Arts Council’s Arts Alive benefit this past fall. The group received rave reviews for their rousing renditions of the second movement of the Bach cantata and of “Come Rain or Come Shine.” Greenwich Arts Council Executive Director, Paul Master-Karnik, expressed his enthusiasm for the work of Pamela Kuhn, praising not only her musical gifts, but her willingness to give back to the community.

“Greenwich is blessed by the presence of Pamela Kuhn. Pamela approaches all her work with professionalism and passion and her support of the Greenwich Arts Council enhances our organization and its standing in the area,” Mr. Master-Karnik said. “Her Angel Choir, which raises money to support breast cancer survivors, makes its home in the Greenwich Arts Center.”

The concert is open to the public and all are welcome.
