PHOTOS: Silvertones fundraise for Italy trip

Silvertones performed for the Twelfth Night Revelry community concert to fund their spring trip to Italy.

Beginning in 1992, almost every other year, the Strath Haven Silvertones have traveled in the spring to perform classical Italian repertoire along with American classics for the people on the streets and churches of Italy.

“It’s an amazing experience…we will be experiencing taking the music of Italy back to Italy,” Choral Director John Shankweiler said. “A lot of the people that we will be singing for have never heard this music.”

To help fundraise for the choir trip, over the past few months, the Silvertones have performed at several events, most notably for the Twelfth Night Revelry featuring James McLaughlin and The Sermon.

On the evening of January 6, the Silvertones hosted their community event at the Wallingford Community Arts Center. Alumni, parents, and friends of choir members were in attendance and were complimented with live music, food, and drinks.

The Silvertones, featuring middle school music teacher Mr. James McLaughlin and The Sermon opened the small performance with “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” by The Rolling Stones. The choir also sang “Ego Sum Panis Vivus” by composer Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, “Witness” by composer Jack Halloran, and “Unclouded Day” by composer Shawn Kirchner.
