In honor of the 50th Anniversary of Barbados’ independence, St. Cyprian’s will host a concert by the Silvertones of Barbados on July 24, 2016 at 4:00 PM. This ensemble is a high energy “Gospel Group” with incredible chemistry, sweet vocal harmonies, musical drive and nice stage presence. Traditional gospel songs mixed with modern up-tempo rhythms of reggae, calypso and soca, builds instant energy, and infects the audience with the rhythms of the Caribbean, where they develop an irresistible urge during performances, to get up and stomp their feet, dance, clap and rejoice.
Admission: Adult-$20.00 and children under 12yrs. $10.00. Music CDs, DVDs and refreshments will be on sale. Please see the flyer here for full information. If you wish further information, please call the church office: 617.427.6175.
