St. Luke’s in Darien to welcome NYC singing ensemble for fundraiser
DARIEN — The Saint Luke's Friends of Music is hosting an afternoon with one of New York's finest professional singing ensembles, The Salvatones, at 5 p.m. on May 19 at 5 p.m. at the church, 1864 Post Road in Darien.
Daniel Brondel, Associate Director of Music and the organist of St. Patrick's Cathedral, will conduct the a capella ensemble in arrangements of Broadway, jazz, and Springtime tunes -- think The Swingle Singers meet Yale's Whiffenpoofs -- in a concert that promises to entertain the whole family.
The Salvatones have been dazzling audiences with their vocal artistry since 2010 under Brondel’s musical direction. The group has appeared in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, and Ohio; performed for the papal visit of Pope Francis to New York City; and recently released their debut album, “Wonderful World.”
A suggested donation at the door of $20 per ticket or $50 per family will help the Saint Luke’s Friends of Music continue to bring the country’s highest-quality musicians to Darien for the enjoyment of the entire community. A wine and cheese reception will follow.
