Holiday Concert with Merrimack Valley A Cappella
December 2, 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM, Amherst Town Library
AMHERST – Merrimack Valley A Cappella chorus is known for touching audiences and making those chords ring! They perform in the 4-part a cappella, barbershop style, which lends itself to many musical genres and eras. Their repertoire reflects this diversity. They will be caroling and singing some classic holiday favorites. They have invited their own affiliated quartets to join in, so expect to see these talented groups interspersed in our show.
Don’t be surprised if they bring some ‘good vibes’ tunes, favorites from musical theater, or some groovy Beatles. Then they'll get back to the winter carols, and invite the audience to join in a holiday SING-A-LONG. It’s going to be so much fun! We hope you can join us for this show!

In 2003, she began her studies in Manchester, New Hampshire for an extended period of time at The Ingbretson Studio of Drawing and Painting. This studio is an atelier where the tradition of “The Boston School” is the foundation, tracing back to the ateliers of the 19th century impressionists of Paris.
In the style of contemporary realism, Sandy paints in both oil and pastel, where her primary focus is still life. Sandy maintains her strong foundation for drawing, strong light affect, and overall unity in her works. She has exhibited in numerous juried shows throughout New England and has received many awards. She is signature member of The Pastel Society Of New Hampshire, an associate member of The Guild of Boston Artists and an associate member of the Oil Painters of America.
