The Accidental Sisters, the women’s a cappella vocal ensemble based in Jamestown,
announces its first gathering of the 2013-14 season on Thursday, September 19 at 7:30
PM in the meeting room of the Jamestown Philomenian Library on North Main Road.
The ensemble, established four years ago by director Julie Beth Andrews, sings classical,
folk, and contemporary music from the United States and around the world. This season’s
repertoire includes pieces by Kodaly and Bartok, as well as folk songs from South Africa
and the Appalachian mountains, and a contemporary classic by Sting.
Each year the Accidental Sisters concerts explore themes of women, children, peace,
and hope. All concert proceeds are donated to projects aiding women in need, locally and
internationally, as chosen by the group.
The un-auditioned ensemble includes a wide range of ages and musical experience, from
amateur to professional. While solo voices are sometimes featured, the heart of the
ensemble’s music is blending many parts into one voice.
To cover costs of music and concert production, singers pay a $50 annual fee. Payment
options are always available. The group encourages high school and college singers to
join and waives their fee.
To learn more about singing with the Accidental Sisters, come to the Library at 7:15,
just before the first rehearsal, on Thursday, September 19.
