Livingston Taylor to Perform in Benefit for GD Chamber Choir
Thu, 02/20/2020 - 4:04pm Heraldgroton
Incomparable singer-song-writer Livingston Taylor will return to the area to perform in a benefit concert supporting the award-winning Groton-Dunstable High School Chamber Choir. The event takes place April 5 at Devens Common Center, 31 Andrews Parkway, Devens. All proceeds will support the Chamber Choir’s upcoming trip to Spain, where they will perform by invitation at the Royal Palace in Madrid and other legendary venues.
Taylor has twice before performed on behalf of the Chamber Choir, including concerts that helped the students get to London to sing at the 2012 Summer Olympics and travel to Italy, Austria and the Czech Republic in 2014. Since then, the Chamber Choir has returned by invitation to Europe in 2017 and performed at Carnegie Hall with Grammy- winning composer Eric Whitacre in 2018. They have now been in- vited to perform in Barcelona and Madrid during their April vacation week this year.
During that trip, in addition to singing at the Royal Palace, the Chamber Choir will perform at famed Montserrat Abbey, as well as a number of other his- toric sites, including several cultural exchange concerts with local choirs.
The Chamber Choir has been actively raising funds so that every student can afford to travel to Spain, and the April 5 event with Livingston Taylor is part of that effort. The evening begins at 5 p.m. with a cocktail hour, silent auction bidding and music by local jazz ensemble, Blue Taxi. The concert opens with a performance by the Chamber Choir at 6:30 p.m., followed by Livingston Taylor at 7 p.m.
Local merchants and other donors have provided many attractive items for the silent auction, including vacation getaways, a personal catered dinner package, theater, restaurant and concert tickets, as well as sports tickets, musical instruments, artwork and much more.
A cash bar and food for pur- chase will also be available during the evening.
Tickets are $45 for general admission. VIP tickets are $75 each, which includes a private, catered pre-concert reception with Livingston Taylor and preferred concert seating.
