The Hingham Singers, a Boston-area-based ensemble of eleven members will be guest musicians at Broad Bay Congregational United Church of Christ, 941 Main Street Waldoboro on July 21. The morning service, which begins at 10 am, will feature several sacred a cappella and accompanied choral pieces performed by the group. The Hingham Singers will also present evening concerts of “The Music of Peter, Paul, and Mary”, in Wiscasset (July 19, 7:30 pm, First Congregational Church) and Camden (July 20, 7:30 pm at the First Congregational Church).
The trio of Peter, Paul and Mary gained prominence in a time of conflict and crisis. Singing songs of hope as conflicts over civil rights and the war in Vietnam raged, they inspired audiences to come together and sing and work for justice and peace. Rev. Nancy Duncan will continue her sermon reflections on the theme of Renouncing Violence with thoughts on how in troubled and fearful times we can glimpse answers “blowing the in the wind.”
