An Evening Of A Capella (Wakefield High School)
Enjoy an a cappella event showcasing regional high school talent will take place in the new theater space at Wakefield High School. The event is two-fold, to showcase the students and to raise some funds to help retire the loan which the Center for Performing Arts incurred in order to finish the construction of the new theater.
Among the various groups, Doug Hodgkins, Choral Director at Lynnfield High School, is bringing groups from his school: the all female AcaBellas, the co-ed ensemble the AcaPeople, and the LHS Chamber Singers. There is a lot of overlap between these three groups, as 13 out of the 20 Chamber Singers will also be singing with one of the a cappella groups, thereby demonstrating how much these teens love to sing a variety of musical genres, and that the a cappella style is not restricted to groups who sing solely without instrumental back-up.
Tickets for “An Evening of A Cappella” can be purchased at Smith Drug, 390 Main Street in downtown Wakefield, or may be ordered by calling 781-246-3008. General admission is $15, students and senior citizens are $10. At Wakefield High School’s new theater, 60 Farm Street, the doors will open at 6:30 and the performance will begin at 7:00 p.m. Nine raffle prizes will be offered, including museum passes, cruise tickets, show tickets, a hair salon gift certificate, and an autographed book by a famous Wakefield alum. Come hear the next generation of singers before they become stars!
