Festive Holiday Music at the Millis Public Library
Saturday, December 13th at 2 pm

Festive Holiday Music at the Millis Library

 

Come get into the holiday spirit and join us

for a fabulous musical performance

featuring THE COPLEY CATS!

 

Returning by popular demand, The Copley Cats, the all female a cappella singing sensation, will perform on Saturday, December 13, 2014 at 2:00pm in the Roche Bros. Community Room.  They will beautifully harmonize your favorite holiday songs and put some twists on some new ones.  This program is free and open to the public. No reservations are necessary.  All ages are welcome. 

 

The Copley Cats began in 1985 by a group of Mount Holyoke graduates who missed the close harmony singing they had in college as members of the V-8s, the oldest collegiate women’s a cappella group in the country. Through auditions, the Copley Cats have expanded to encompass many women of different backgrounds and experiences. The current Copley Cats include professionals, graduate students, and stay at home moms.

      

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Millis Public Library. The Millis Public library is located at 961 Main St, Millis.  The Library is handicapped accessible and ample parking is available in the lot behind the library.  

 

For more information, call the library at (508) 376-8282 or go online to www.millislibrary.org  "Like” us on Face Book-Friends of the Millis Public Library.

Two real-life events were incorporated into the plot of this 1951 MGM musical.

Jane Powell was cast as the sister and partner of American-entertainer Fred Astaire. The plot has Astaire and Powell heading to Merrie Olde England to perform at the palace.
