KENT—The Kent Singers have barely concluded their Christmas season “Messiah Sing-in” and they are already planning for Easter.

The group’s next performance will be March 10 at 3 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church at 1 North Main Street.

They will present Britten’s “Rejoice in the Lamb,” a cantata for four soloists, choir and organ. It was composed by Benjamin Britten in 1943 using text from the poem “Jubilate Agno” by Christopher Smart (1722-1771).

The Singers, founded by Jon Lafleur, first performed in December 1973 in Kent. An amateur group, it has maintained a high standard of excellence in the performance of a classical choral repertoire and performs in New Milford, Kent and Washington.

Tickets for the performance are $20 and are available online or at the door. Children ages 12 and younger will be admitted for free.

For information about ticket purchases, contact Kent Singers at tickets@kentsingers.com.
