Mount Abe to host Sweeties a cappella reunion
BRISTOL — “Sweeties” from the past and present will celebrate 20 years of a cappella singing at Mount Abraham Union High School with a reunion concert this Friday, June 7, at 7 p.m. in the Mount Abe auditorium.
The public is invited to join them as they pull together songs and singers, and revisit memories made.
Singers will be arriving for rehearsal after 4 p.m.
Since this singing tradition was started in 1998 by Mount Abraham senior Georgia Wright, Mount Abe a cappella has grown to be part of the local culture. Sweet Beats (an all women’s group) was first on the scene, followed by In Transition (men’s group), and in 2006 they joined forces to become Sweet Transition.
“Our singers have entertained the school, local, and state community, bringing joy and music to the hearts of young and old,” said Mount Abe vocal music instructor Megan LaRose. “Two highlights are the Singing Valentines we deliver each year, being featured on the front page of the Addy Indy one year, and our two-day tour, for which we raise money all year to go out at sing for as many people as we can.”
The concert is free, but a free-will donation will be accepted at the door.
