Spring has sprung, Scandinavian-style, as the Island Community Chorus offers its annual concert before the summer sun warms us up and after the snow begins its melt.

Director Peter Boak promises a new tune as he takes some advice from accompanist Garrett Brown and tries out the music of a young Norwegian composer named Ola Gjeilo.

“I was so impressed by the beauty and freshness of his music I wanted to showcase it at our spring concert,” Mr. Boak said.

But because of Mr. Gjeilo’s relative anonymity, he felt it would be best to expand the program and use other Scandinavian-related composers such as Edvard Grieg and Morten Lauridsen, among a few other notables.

This concert will feature nearly 90 Islanders gathering with one voice. And after 20 years at the helm, Mr. Boak still continues to provide something new and crisp. Besides the choral component at the spring concert, there’s the added bonus of a string quartet to go along with Mr. Brown’s piano accompaniment.

The music begins at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 11, and continues on Sunday, April 12, at 3 p.m., both concerts at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown. Tickets are $15 at the door.
