The Sounds of Pohick annual free concert is Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 4 p.m. Be sure to come and invite your friends. All ages are welcome.
You’ll hear Pohick’s musical organizations in concert in the historic church, and you’ll help make music by singing hymns with all these musicians. You’ll hear music by composers who have written music for the church through time in a large variety of styles.
You will hear the voices of children, teenagers and adults, and you will hear handbells, guitars, fiddle, bass, tin whistle, celtic harp, organ, piano, keyboard and percussion. Close to 100 people make music at Pohick!
Musical groups featured are the St. Francis Choir and St. Cecelia St. Alban Choir, both for children, the Pohick Pickers, an instrumental group with a wide repertoire, the Pohick Bell Choir, who will ring handbells and handchimes, the Pohick Early Church Music Ensemble, which sings 16th and 17th century anthems, and the Choir of Pohick, the 40 voice adult choir.
This year a free will donation at the door will help to bring guest musicians to the church.
