Sing Out Strong

PORTSMOUTH - Con Tutti celebrates spring with the joyous, heart-pounding rhythms and gorgeous harmonies of African music and drumming on Sat., May 4, at 7:30 p.m., South Church in Portsmouth. Four African drummers on djembes, agogo and shekeres will ramp up the rhythm of the 100 voices of Con Tutti, world music chorus!

“I’m so very excited about this concert!” says Con Tutti conductor, Joanne Connolly, “I’ve always included African music in our concerts because I love it so much, but to have a whole program of such deeply gorgeous, inviting and very fun music has been great to rehearse! I am excited to share the fun we’ve had in rehearsals with our audience! This past February we were invited to sing at the African Burying Ground in Portsmouth on Chestnut Street to honor those buried there. We sang South Africa’s famous ‘Tshotsholoza’ with our drummers. We were honored to be part of that ceremony, and this was the inspiration for our all African concert!”

Randy Armstrong, Theo Martey, Shamou, and Eddie DiMuzio will offer African percussion, and there will be a wonderful surprise for the audience as well.

Tickets are $10.00 in advance , and $12.00 at the door. Tickets are available now at RiverRun Bookstore in Portsmouth at 142 Fleet Street. The concert is sure to sell out so get your tickets early. For more information, please call Con Tutti at (207) 451-9346.
