Along our Journey
2018 celebrates 20 years of song. After a year of learning new skills, vocal coaching and building repertoire, our celebration of 20 years of singing culminates in our Holiday Extravaganza … a show with a professional jazz orchestra and 70 singers on stage!
2017 brought our chorus to new heights. In April Silk'n Sounds placed 3rd at the Harmony, Inc. Area 2 Convention & Contest in Devons, MA, earning our highest score ever. With 45 members on stage, the chorus dazzled the audience with their performances of Sweet Georgia Brown and Are You Lonesome Tonight. The chorus also received the Area 2 Achievement Award.
Our summer months were dedicated to learning new repertoire and increasing vocal skills. The focus of the fall was preparation for "Winter Swing, Voices & Vibes!" our largest concert to date partnering with world renowned vibes artist Arthur Lipner, jazz musicians and singers from North Haven High School.
2016 was an amazing year for Silk'n Sounds. Under the inspirational leadership of our gifted director, Kia Lampe-Onnerud, we honed our vocal skills and widened our repertoire. We increased our membership to 44, and received our highest scores yet at Harmony Inc.'s area and international contests. We sang at an ecology festival, an appreciation event for hospital volunteers, a synagogue, churches and libraries. We ended the year with our annual holiday concert which featured ballads, show tunes, jazz standards, holiday favorites, and a children's chorus.
