Algoncapella At Wick Choral Festival

Algoncapella performed on Saturday, January 27 at the Wick Choral Festival at St. Mark’s School in Southborough. They were one of eight high school groups who performed that night and were treated to a performance by the award-winning Nor’Easters from Northeastern University. This is the third year that they’ve performed at this Festival. The Myron A. Wick, Jr. Choral Festival is a two evening a cappella festival offered annually in memory of SM alumnus Myron A. Wick ’33, and in honor of his lifelong enjoyment of singing. It was established in 1992 through the generosity of the Wick family and friends. The Festival always includes an audience singalong of Lida Rose, Myron Wick’s favorite song.

The Gallery of the Boroughs is at it again! Our third show this year is titled Perspectives and showcases work from three New England artists. George Middleton, Wendy James, and Brenda Cirioni are all practicing artists in the New England area, and each has a body of work that offers a unique way of viewing the world around them. The show will be up all of February and there will be an opening reception on Thursday February 1 at 2:00pm. If you are in the building stop by for a few minutes to enjoy the work and meet the artists in person!
