Northfield to perform at seasonal celebrations

Northfield will celebrate the season with concerts on Dec. 9 and 10.

FARMINGTON — Northfield, a vocal ensemble based in Farmington, will continue their tradition of seasonal celebrations with two performances over the weekend of Dec. 9 and 10.

The music, sung in an a cappella style, will include holiday music, as well as an eclectic mix of sacred, secular and silly songs. In addition to their usual selections from the Early American shape note tradition, Northfield will perform pieces from the European Renaissance, Late Romantic and Impressionist periods, and several special new-to-their-repertoire, 20th and 21st century selections.

Also special this season, opening the concert in Farmington on Sunday will be UMF’s premier a cappella group, the Clefnotes. The performance is supported by the ArtsFarmington organization, which promotes and sponsors a variety of arts events in the greater Farmington area.

Northfield will celebrate the season through music at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 9, at the Skowhegan Federated Church, 13 Island Ave., and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10, at Nordica Auditorium, UMF’s Merrill Hall.

Admission is by donation.
