Let the Sky Fall Into Your Mouth
Social Band Sings to Food and Drink
Social Band, Burlington’s lively band of singers, dedicates its fall program to food and drink, both literal and metaphorical. The program features songs and poetry about sustenance, refreshment and indulgence – as well as the joys of companionship around the table and our gratefulness for the nourishment we are given and share with others. Join Social Band as we bring our distinctive brand of choral performance to the delights of food and drink and “let the sky fall into our mouths.”
