The Evergreen Singers invite you to a get-together for singers who are interested in knowing more about Evergreen’s musical work. Come meet our new music director, Anna Alden. We are a group who offers songs for comfort and healing to people who are seriously ill or nearing the end of life. Our selections range from quiet and restful harmonies to spirited gospel music, traditional spiritual pieces, shape note songs, folk songs, hymns, and old favorites. The preferences of families guide our selection of songs. Evergreen rehearses twice a month, Sundays, between 4 and 6 pm, in Norwich. We sing at local nursing homes once a month on Tuesdays or Thursdays, and we are on call in smaller groups for bedside sings.
