This joyful sing-along is free of charge, thanks to the generosity of its funders.

Teens and adults
Kathryn Southworth
The Canterbury Singers partner with the Canterbury Shaker Village to present authentic Shaker music, expanded by arrangements of American folk songs, music of early America, and inspired arrangements by a variety of composers. One of the very few non-auditioned, high quality professionally directed choral experiences for mixed voices (men and women blended ensemble) in the Capital Area. Rehearsals take place Tuesday evenings from 7pm to 8:15pm.

Songweavers -- New Hampshire's original women's community chorus

Peggo Horstmann Hodes
Based on the belief that everyone can sing, members of this large women's chorus learn songs by rote, in the African-American tradition; music-reading skills are not a prerequisite. Songweavers rehearse in two groups (Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning) and present an annual spring concert. The repertoire includes music from many ethnic traditions. The singing is predominantly a cappella, although drums and other instruments are often used as accompaniment.

Songweaver Drummers

Grace & Lindsey Schust
This ensemble explores African-style hand drumming and other percussion, including agogos (bells), shakers, and claves. The ensemble performs with the Songweavers at the annual spring concert.
