Nasoons - Free Concert

October 17 at 6:00 pm, Navy Memorial Auditorium

Nassoon alumni of the 50’s and 60’s who have been singing together annually for the past 18 years will be performing the close harmony a cappella songs from the repertoire of their undergraduate years at 6 pm on Saturday, October 17 at a FREE concert at the Navy Memorial auditorium, 701 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC.

These 25 a cappella singers are a close knit sub-group of the Nassoons of the mid-20th century, doing mostly five part arrangements of classic American and college songs: Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Oscar Hammerstein, Irving Berlin and Brooks Bowman (Princeton ’38) are among the composers and lyricists.  The group has performed for receptive and enthusiastic audiences in clubs, chapels and public spaces in locations including Palm Springs, Charleston as part of Piccolo Spoleto, Newport, Scottsdale, Gloucester, Tucson, Florida, California, Seattle, Aspen, Chicago, Bermuda and Kansas City.  It also includes a quartet of the younger men called Coast to Coast pursuing music in the Four Freshmen tradition.  The Nassoons are the oldest close harmony group at Princeton having come to life singing a five part version of Perfidia during a glee club concert in 1941 and still going strong.

This will be a great opportunity to relax, refresh and reminisce to some wonderful vocal music, and bask a bit in the great camaraderie and conviviality that these men share during their annual get-togethers.
