What do you do with a partridge and a pear tree after the singing has ended? Not to mention seven swans and noisy drummers… The singers of Tuesday Musical’s St. Cecilia Choral Society ponder these age-old questions as they perform “My True Love Gave to Me” by Andy Beck and Brian Fisher for our holiday SUNDAY BRUNCH WITH TUESDAY MUSICAL. The choral society participated in the Tuesday Musical December Members Program in the Idabelle Firestone Chapel at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Akron. Saint Cecilia’s Choral Society was formed in 1921 as an auxiliary to what was then known as the Tuesday Musical Club. Gertrude Seiberling, whose family built Stan Hywet, was instrumental in chartering the group, which provided singing opportunities for the daughters of Tuesday Musical members. St. Cecilia’s is an auditioned four-part women’s ensemble. Members now include current and former music teachers, church soloists, members of Tuesday Musical, and former and current members of The Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, Blossom Festival Chorus, Robert Page Festival Singers, Akron Symphony Chorus, Singers Companye, and the Summit Chorale, among others. Become a member of Tuesday Musical and have opportunities to hear music in wonderful venues throughout the area.
