On Wednesday, October 9, 2013 the Keene & Einbeck Collaboration Concert was held in the Redfern Arts Center Alumni Recital Hall. The concert featured the Keene State College Chamber Singers, Brass Ensemble and two community choirs.
The community choirs were the Chamber Singers of Keene and VOICES, who came in all the way from Salzderhelden, Germany. According to Professor and Director of the KSC Chamber Singers, Dr. Sandra Howard, the concert was dedicated to former Mayor Mike Blastos and drew in several city officials.
Howard also said the concert entailed the world premiere of a piece composed by KSC student, Miriam Sharrock, combining all three choirs and ending with the accompaniment of the Brass Ensemble. The concert also brought in food and monetary donations to benefit The Community Kitchen of Keene. The performance was so well-attended that the Alumni Recital Hall was completely full and had to turn away an estimated 75 people, Howard added.
