Women’s chorus Sorellanza to perform on March 23


The women’s a cappella group Sorellanza: Sisters in Song will perform at the Northshore UU Church on Friday, March 23. This is the eighth concert in the Music in the Woods series, and it will begin at 7:30 p.m.  Tickets cost $10 (children under 12 are free).

Choral-music lovers will be treated to a wide-ranging repertoire including current pop songs, American folk tunes, the Beatles, 16th-century sacred music, and international folk songs from Spain, Israel, and England. The group of Cape Ann women includes Rockport resident Patti Pike as director.

Pike always includes a Beatles song in the repertoire, honoring their importance in the 20th-century musical lexicon. More than half of the group have been with Sorellanza since its inception. Pike’s laid-back style and insightful teaching ability keep them coming back year after year.

“Her love of choral music is contagious,” says veteran Kate Stevens of Beverly. “She brings out the best in all of us.” The group’s growing audience is testament to Pike’s talent and standing in the Rockport music scene.
