Blue Notes singing group

Founded over 60 years ago, the Blue Notes are a philanthropic group of women who volunteer their time and talent for a good cause. Singing music from Big Band to Broadway, the group performs in four-part harmony for senior centers, assisted living venues and for a variety of audiences throughout Southern Fairfield County. Their director, Dr. Craig Scott Symons, is also the director of the First Congregational Church of Greenwich choir.

Open Rehearsal
Tuesday, April 1st
12:30 – 2:30pm

If you enjoy singing in harmony, what better way to combine your philanthropy and your talent than to volunteer with the DCA Blue Notes?

For the 2014-2015 season, rehearsals are held January to June, then begin again in September, with performances from late October through the holidays. The schedule is generally set for Tuesdays from 12:30 to 2:30pm. But it’s not all work – this is a very collegial group whose members over time form strong bonds.

The Blue Notes also show their interest in philanthropy with their membership in the DCA, where their funds help with the DCA mission, to include scholarships for Darien High School graduates.

The Blue Notes invite interested vocalists to sing with the group in an open rehearsal on Tuesday, April 1st from 12:30 to 2:30pm. For further information, call the DCA at 203-655-9050 or Karol Lee Trismen at 203-656-1044, or email us at bluenotes@dariendca.org
