Con Spirito will perform a concert, featuring nostalgic tunes from the 1940s and some contemporary songs, at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 12 at St. Pius X Catholic Church.
The free concert will offer music from other cultures and songs to usher in the holidays. Carolyn Peters will accompany the singers on piano, along with Janine Olsen on flute and Bellissimo members Wendy Goodheart, Aaron Blakeslee, Rachel Simonson and Julie Draeger. Christina Taylor from the Terpsichore Dance Company will also perform with the group.
Con Spirito (with spirit) is celebrating its 14th year as a vocal ensemble. Current members include Rosalie Foster, Lesley Jorden and Martha Rowe, sopranos; Julie Bishop, Jennine Budge and Megan Carling, mezzo sopranos; and Kathleen Cochrane, Nancy Downing, Joan Fritz and Bonnie Warne, altos.
In addition to singing with Con Spirito, members of the group are active elsewhere in the Billings musical community. Several members sing with the Billings Symphony Chorale and High Plains Chamber Singers. Also represented are church choir directors, bell ringers, voice teachers, soloists for community events, and church choir members.
Con Spirito seeks artistic excellence in the performance of innovative as well as traditional music arranged for women’s voices, and their challenging and diverse programming.
