  1. Aw, man. But I can't get to Salem or Dedham. :-( Do you have anything for the non-car-enabled?

    Wasn't there a group that has sings in Belmont? And didn't one of those groups use to have their sings at the Museum of somethingorother Heritage in Lexington?

    This is everything I could find! You're thinking about the Belmont Open Sings, but those are during the year, not the summer. And Masterworks used to have their sings somewhere in Lexington, I believe; I do know their Dedham location is new.

    You should go to the Chorus pro Musica sings; scan down the list, they are in August in Copley Square, and I hear great things about their new conductor.

  3. Right, thanks -- that is what I was thinking of.

    *sigh* It's just tantalizing.

    Stravinsky is not my cup of tea, but I'll try to get to the other three Chorus pro Musica ones.

    Turns out the Chorus Pro Musica sings are actually at 7:30 (rather than 8:00). Only 1 left - but maybe someone will make it!

    Oops, sorry about that! I got the first two right, not sure why I made the mistake halfway through the month. I did correct it for the remaining sing - thanks for catching that.
