Kith + Kin Chorus with Cameron Kinghorn
June 2, 2019 @ 7:00 pm$15
Kith + Kin Chorus is celebrating their Season 3 finale by collaborating with Cameron Kinghorn (of Nooky Jones, Black Market Brass) and raising funds for Spare Key, a local non-profit that supports families facing a medical crisis. Led by founder and choir arranger Rachel Ries (of Her Crooked Heart), Kith + Kin’s Season 3 catalog includes 4 to 8 part arrangements of Paul Simon, Lianne La Havas, The Kinks, Robyn, Kinghorn’s original solo work and more.
Kith + Kin is an uncommon choir that focuses on singing for community good, musical inclusivity and creating new choral arrangements of beloved secular songs. The Chorus aims to nurture a welcoming, joyful environment where anyone who longs to sing in a choir again (or for the first time) can. Members are weavers, doctors, puppeteers, teachers, lawyers and range in age from early 20s to spry 60s. Singers don’t need to be able read music or have any theory training as songs are taught with the help of both sheet music and reference recordings. The song material is a wide mix of classic & indie rock, pop, folk and whatever else inspires, arranged for the choir by Rachel. Through this project, Ries has seamlessly merged her rich choral and classical background with her years as a world-touring, band-leading musician. Voices are the original instrument and few things are more unifying than voices, raised together in song.
