Emily Browder Melville and Meredith Borden by Denise Maccaferri – South Shore Conservatory’s Conservatory Concert Series (CCS) mixes things up vocally with Going Rogue: SSC’s Voice Department Flips on Sunday, March 11, 4 pm at One Conservatory Drive in Hingham, and again on Sunday, March 18, 4 pm at 64 St. George Street in Duxbury. This concert is the final of five productions in CCS’s 2017/18 season.

CCS concerts showcase the diverse talents of the Conservatory’s faculty of nearly 100 educator/performers. Admission to the concert is free, helping advance SSC’s mission of expanding access to arts education and performance. All concerts are on Sunday at 4 pm and include a reception where audience members are invited to meet the performers.

Going Rogue features SSC singers dipping their vocal toes into a new genre of music.  Audience members can expect to enjoy hearing a baritone sing “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story, a female vocalist sing “Herod’s Song” from Jesus Christ Superstar, and a mezzo-soprano sing the iconic bass aria “O Isis und Osiris” from The Magic Flute.  Whatever surprises escape from the vocal chords of these diverse singers is sure to be entertaining, hilarious, and touching.

SSC faculty members performing include Voice Chair Emily Browder Melville, Holly Jennings, Beth MacLeod Largent, Devon Russo, Eve Montague and Meredith Borden.

South Shore Conservatory is committed to being an organization that welcomes the widest range of audience members possible – removing barriers to participation and welcoming everyone in, regardless of ability.  Both its Hingham and Duxbury campuses are wheelchair accessible.  For more detailed information about accessibility, please visit SSC’s Know Before You Go page.
