All Mixed Up: Counterpoint Sings the Music of Pete Seeger
In this unique concert, Counterpoint, Vermont's professional vocal ensemble, celebrates the life and vision of the great American song-writer, activist, and performer Pete Seeger (1919-2014.) Counterpoint's Founder and Director Emeritus Robert De Cormier has prepared stirring choral arrangements of favorites songs such as "If I Had a Hammer," "Where Have All the Flowers Gone," and "Turn Turn Turn." Guitarist Peter Matthews, bassist Don Baldini, and Vermont's young folk sensation Eric George join the twelve classically-trained singers of Counterpoint for an inspiring evening of Pete's classic songs. We'll finish the evening with a singalong, of course, just as Pete would have wanted! Directed by Nathaniel G. Lew, Counterpoint is dedicated to performing choral chamber music and engaging with student musicians, to enhance the cultural life of communities in Vermont and beyond. Since its debut in 2000, the group has garnered praise for its "sophisticated musical expressiveness," and "beautiful blend and lyricism." Counterpoint has recorded ten CDs, including Christmas carols and folk songs from Latin American, Jewish, and African-American traditions.
