Sorellanza, Sisters in Song, returns to the stage with its Fall 2011 Favorites performances. Rockport resident Patti Pike directs the 19-woman a cappella group, delighting audiences since 2006.
Sorellanza sings an eclectic mix of songs from many ages and genres, including 16th century madrigals, American Gospel, contemporary pop, sacred, jazz and international folk. Pike always includes a Beatles song in the repertoire, honoring their importance in the 20th century musical lexicon. More than half of the group have been with Sorellanza since its inception. Pike’s laid-back style and insightful teaching ability keep them coming back year after year. “Her love of choral music is contagious,” says veteran Kate Stevens of Beverly. “She brings out the best in all of us.” The group’s growing audience base is testament to Pike’s talent and standing in the Rockport music scene.
