Palmetto Mastersingers Festival of Choirs

SHE Sings, Columbia’s new women’s chorus, and three other groups join The Palmetto Mastersingers in its annual Festival of Choirs February 23 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Andrews Baptist Church in Columbia. This is the first collaboration of the women of SHE Sings and the men of the Mastersingers. Lillian Quackenbush is artistic director of the Mastersingers and one of four directors of SHE Sings. Also participating in the festival are the Irmo High School Concert Choir, the Union United Methodist Chancel Choir, and the Lyttleton Street (Camden) United Methodist Children’s Choirs. Each choir will present a set, and then all will unite for the finale, Hope for Resolution, a unique blending of a traditional doctrinal hymn and a South African freedom song.
