Acapella on the North Shore

I have presented acapella here before in the form of a great performance of a Toto song "Rain in Africa".

Over the last 18 months we have been enjoying our son's participation in a very talented school acapella group at the Manchester Essex Regional High School.  We went to a concert that featured them among 7 acapella choirs from around Boston.

What a treat this concert turned out to be with singers ranging from very young girls at a private primary school on Boston's North Shore to a choir with some aged members that reminded me of the Young at Heart chorus from Florence out in Western Massachusetts.  By the way, if you haven't seen the amazing documentary of this choir, you are in for a treat.

One of the choirs performing that night was a very talented group called The Works who bid farewell that night two two long standing members.  They sang a moving rendition of Desperado as a send off and tribute to these two singers.
