See Anonymous 4 in concert before they’re history
Quick—what do these three phrases have in common: “a cappella,” “historical scholarship,” and “Christmas season”? Give up yet? The answer is Anonymous 4’s upcoming performance “The Last Noel” at St. Paul’s.
Anonymous 4 is a group of four women who have spent 30 years touring and recording renditions of historical music. They blend the music of the past with today’s technology and intuition to create performances that have been featured on NPR and immortalized in 27 albums.
Unfortunately, their career together is coming to a close, and this performance is one of the last chances to see them.
The show will feature Christmas music throughout the ages, from medieval English carols up through traditional colonial American folk tunes. Songs like “An English Ladymass” and “Cherry Tree Carol” are a new and beautiful break from hearing the same 20 contemporary carols on the radio every year.
Anonymous 4 performs Tuesday, Dec. 8, in St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 305 W. 7th St. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $50 for reserved seating or $25 general admission ($30 at the door) and $10 student admission ($15 at the door). Call (423) 266-8195 or visit stpaulschatt.org for ticket reservations and more information.
