This Shining Night
Join the Jameson Singers in a journey through the musical landscape of British and American song in the 20th and 21st centuries. Benjamin Britten’s matchless flower songs, Vaughan Williams’ mystical evocation of Shakespeare’s Tempest, shimmering nocturnes by Morton Lauridsen, with settings of poems by Rilke and James Agee, and director Jameson Marvin’s masterful arrangements of Celtic folksongs and full-throated American hymns — these are just a few of the delights awaiting our audiences this spring.

|The Jameson Singers is a mixed choral ensemble formed in the fall of 2010, by Jameson Marvin, former Director of Choral Activities at Harvard University (1978-2010). This 70-voice choir is comprised of amateur singer-musicians, many of whom are Dr. Marvin’s former students. The Jameson Singers is open by audition to Boston area singers who have choral/vocal experience and quick musicianship. We offer two concerts per year, spanning choral literature from the 15th through the 21st centuries, sacred and secular, a cappella and choral orchestral.||
“Beautifully performed… impeccable intonation and blend… The Jameson Singers sang with passion…”
