The campfire sing-along is a special tradition among members of the Appleton Boychoir.
There wasn’t a fire on Sunday and they weren’t beneath the stars, though they brought their camp music to Pierce Park and invited the community to share in the fun.
Families and community members joined voices with the Appleton Boychoir as they began their season with the second annual Songfest.
The festive, less formal community sing-along event included food trucks and a performance from the band, Murphy’s Law.
Dr. Kevin Meidl, artistic director for the program, led the boys with his acoustic guitar. Audience members had lyric sheets and participated in a number of the songs.
The Appleton Boychoir is in its 41st season after concluding its 40th with a tour of Greece.
There’s plenty more to come.
On Oct. 20, the ChamberSingers and MasterSingers will present “Les Rituels … The MasterWorks concert.” The performance at St. Mary Catholic Parish in Appleton will include songs considered masterpieces and representative of their era and style.
The Appleton Boychoir’s signature annual event, “A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols” will include two performances on Dec. 7 at Lawrence Memorial Chapel.
On Feb. 8, the Ambassador and ChamberSingers choirs will present “Horizons … A Black History Month Event.” The concert at Lawrence Memorial Chapel will feature music of South Africa.
The Appleton Boychoir will close the season with “A Spoonful of Sugar” on May 8-9. The performances will be held in conjunction with Makaroff Youth Ballet and feature songs from Hollywood blockbusters.
