Unfortunate update: We were improperly informed. The performance already occurred during the original re-opening. Our apologies for getting anyone’s hopes up. A couple of photos of the event are below:
We’ve received notice via Dorothy Orzel about a very special library re-opening celebration event tonight:
The Beaconettes have decided to perform their ode to the Beacon Hill Library outside the building tonight. The Beaconettes are an all women a cappella group — mostly Beacon Hill residents — who have a great talent for writing witty lyrics to classic tunes. They won Best New Group at last yearâ€™s Great Figgy Pudding Contest. It just happens that they had recently penned this tribute to that unexpectedly glorious building (and its staff), so the re-opening seemed a perfect occasion to perform for patrons and staff…
The Beaconettes performed at the Beacon Hill Festival at Jefferson Park back in June. Several performances are available on YouTube: God Bless Our Ferries, Gentlemen; Danny Boy; We Three Naked Cyclists; and more.
You are invited to join them at 7pm in front of the Beacon Hill branch library.
Thank you, Dorothy!
One thought on “NOT Tonight: An a cappella tribute to the library”
Sorry if I sent the wrong date.
The Beaconettes performed for our wonderful library staff several weeks ago-on the day they re-opened from the week of budget closures. Branch Manager Wei Cai and several staff members were very touched by the performance. (I’ll send 2 photos seperately).
BTW, the acoustics were pretty good!
