Tidewater Singers to Perform “A Peaceable Kingdom”


The Tidewater Singers will present an a cappella concert featuring Randall Thompson’s “A Peaceable Kingdom” with other songs of the season on Friday, December 8 at 7:30 pm at Trinity Cathedral in Easton, on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 pm at St. Paul’s Church in Oxford, and on Sunday, December 10 at 4:00 pm at Christ Episcopal Church in Cambridge.

Under the direction of William Thomas, The Tidewater Singers are a select group of professional and amateur singers founded in 2001. The goal is to bring varied and exciting quality choral music to the Eastern Shore.

Commenting on the concert, Thomas said, “Our audiences will be excited to hear the Tidewater Singers apply their a cappella talent to Randall Thompson’s The Peaceable Kingdom, with its cycle of eight sacred choruses.” The Tidewater Singers are renowned throughout the mid shore area for their a cappella work.

Now in his tenth season as artistic director of the Tidewater Singers, Thomas is associate professor of music at Chesapeake College. Previously he directed the choirs at Easton High School and at Christ Church (Episcopal) in St. Michaels.
