Groton's NOA Gallery announces two exciting, new collaborations merging music and art—with the Groton-Dunstable High School Chamber Choir and Indian Hill Music in Littleton.
NOA's February 2 Artist Reception at The Groton Inn, "Celebrate the Seasons," will include a performance by the Groton-Dunstable High School Chamber Choir from 2-2:30 p.m. A percentage of sales from the event will be donated to the choir, and they will also accept individual donations during the reception. Join NOA Gallery from 1-4 p.m. for a day of fine art by 12 regional artists (including Groton's own Mary Minifie), meet the artists, and enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres and beverages from The Groton Inn.
NOA is also pleased to announce its new gallery location at Indian Hill Music in Littleton, MA, as well as its first art reception, to be held February 9 from 5-7 p.m. featuring the pastels and mixed media of Pepperell artist Alexia Rosoff Wilber. The reception immediately follows a concert by Catherine Weinfield-Zell on oboe and Hazy Malcolmson on
Both NOA Gallery artist receptions are free and open to the public.
"These exciting new collaborations will create opportunities for inspiration, creativity and
community in the Nashoba Valley," says NOA Gallery Founder Joni Parker-Roach. Since 2002, her gallery has given New England artists a venue to show and sell their work and been the driving force behind public art projects including murals and sculpture and, for many years, a local Art Walk, as well as art education.
Now in its 34th year, Indian Hill Music is a thriving non-profit regional center for music education and performance located in Littleton, MA. Indian Hill Music’s professional performance season is anchored by concerts of the 70-member Orchestra of Indian Hill, the region’s premier professional symphony orchestra, led by Artistic Director and Conductor, Bruce Hangen, along with live performances by music school faculty, Orchestra of Indian Hill musicians, and other renowned guest artists. At the core of Indian Hill's mission is a comprehensive and synergistic music education program serving a community of over 1,000 students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
The award-winning Groton-Dunstable High School Chamber Choir, under the direction of Tim Savoy, is renowned for its musical excellence and is continually invited to perform internationally. Their first appearance in Europe was during the 2012 Olympics in London. Since then, they have performed across Italy, Austria, the Czech Republic and Croatia. In 2018, they performed at Carnegie Hall with Grammy-winning composer Eric Whitacre.
In April 2020, the choir will travel to Spain to perform in Barcelona and Madrid. Because of the group’s strong team spirit, the students travel only if every member of the choir can go, and they are fundraising this year to make the Spain trip affordable for all. The Chamber Choir will host a benefit concert with Livingston Taylor on April 5 at Devens Common Center to support the trip.
