Baystate Franklin Medical Center’s “Clinical Notes,” a hospital-based women’s a cappella chorus, will perform a free holiday concert, Deck the Halls, Tuesday, December 15, 5:30 – 6:30 pm, in the hospital’s Conference Rooms B/C, off the main entrance. Under the direction of Kathryn Aubrey-McAvoy, the group will perform both traditional and contemporary holiday and secular music. Hospital staff, patients, visitors and the public are invited to attend.
Clinical Notes was formed in 2003 by Phyllis Stone and Annginette Anderson, who shared a love of a cappella singing and a belief that music should be part of a healing environment. Though members have come and gone over the 12 years, most of the singers have been in the group since its inception. The group performs two formal concerts yearly (around the winter and summer solstice); and sings at various hospital-related events, such as the annual Chocolate Fantasy, Nurses’ Week, and other celebrations. They have also performed during the Relay for Life “Sacred Gathering,” Hospice of Franklin County Tree-Lighting, the United Way A Cappella Festival, and the BFMC Follies.
