      Living History Concert: Music of Early New England
      Saturday February 20, 1999, 7:30pm

      The Santa Cruz Shape Note Society, Barry Phillips-cello, Shelley
      Phillips-harp and woodwinds, Lars Johannesson-flute and Deby
      Grosjean-fiddle, the Community Music Kid's Celtic Camp, and dancers from
      Vine Hill Elementary School will present an evening of music and dance from
      the time of the American Revolution. The performance will take place on
      Saturday, Feb. 20 at 7:30 pm at the Pacific Cultural Center at the corner
      of Seabright and Broadway in Santa Cruz. Donations will be gratefully
      accepted at the door. Proceeds will benefit the Community Music School.
      This project is supported by a grant from the Santa Cruz City Arts
      Commission, highlighting and preserving a precious musical heritage.

      The Santa Cruz Shape Note Society will sing music by colonial composers
      from the Sacred Harp. This four-part intergenerational choir is open to
      all and uses an early American form of music notation with shaped note
      heads that greatly assists in sight-singing.

      The Community Music Kid's Celtic Camp is held in the summer for young folk
      musicians aged 7-12. This year's band inlcudes 25 kids playing harps,
      fiddles and woodwinds. They will be accompanying eight dancers from the
      Vine Hill Elementary fifth grade class performing dances from early new
      England in costume.

      Barry Phillips will be directing music from his album The World Turned
      Upside Down, a release from Gourd Music of music from the time of the
      American Revolution. Books and recording will be on sale at the concert,
      as well as baked goods to benefit the school.
