Burlington’s Lively Band of Singers
Social Band, Burlington’s lively band of singers, creates thematic programs that weave together song and poetry, striking a balance between thoughtfulness and joviality seldom found in choral groups. The group strives to draw upon the strengths of classical and folk traditions, and offers a performance that is both refined and a direct expression of feeling – feeding listeners’ hearts and heads. Featuring a powerful, full sound, and a playful spirit, Social Band brings warmth and vitality to its broad repertoire. Encouraging new composition has been part of Social Band’s mission from the outset, and much of its repertoire comes from Vermont composers – many of them members of the group. Social Band is directed by Amity Baker.

“The sound of their voices will transport you to another place, make you smile, and leave you feeling joyful and peaceful.”
