All the Fields: Songs of walking and wandering
Social Band Sings of Walking and Wandering
Springtime and the urge to be “out and about” go hand in hand and Social Band, Burlington’s lively Band of Singers, will celebrate spring with a program centered on the theme of walking. Whether freewheeling or contemplative, literal or metaphoric, out of necessity or just for fun, walking is interwoven with our human history and culture. Join Social Band for a musical jaunt of poetry and song.
“All the Fields”
Songs of walking and wandering
- Saturday, April 7, 2018 – 7:30pm ~ Richmond Free Library
- Sunday, April 8, 2018 – 3:00pm ~ First Unitarian Universalist Society of Burlington

In Social Band’s exploration of this theme, the twenty-member choral group will sing everything from Renaissance polyphony by Nicolas Gombert to rough-and-tumble traditional folk songs. Other selections include ancient pilgrimage songs from the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat as well as songs by Vermont composers. Additionally, Social Band will premiere two compositions by Social Band members – “All I Have to Bring”, a setting of an Emily Dickinson poem by Don Jamison and “Walk Humbly” by Bruce Chalmer.
As always, Social Band brings its characteristic “joie de vivre” to this program – combining powerful singing, food for thought and our collective sparkling personality.
Admission is $15 in advance, $18 the day of concert. Tickets are available online (no fees) at https://socialband-spring18.eventbrite.com and at the door.
