Holiday Music Performances: The Strays

WHEN: Sunday, December 18, 2011 at 3:00PM - 4:00PM
WHERE: The Living Room

The Strays is a group of eight women who love to sing together. Formed more than 25 years ago when two female professional singers decided to make their duet into a larger group using other stray singers they knew from Newport, Portsmouth, Bristol, Middletown, and Jamestown.  Hence the name: The Strays.

They have sung at Blithewold, the Newport Officers Club, The Viking Hotel, and many assisted living, retirement and nursing homes, churches and social groups.  They are a lively group and strive for perfect harmony. Their songs include show tunes, pop songs, sacred songs, old songs and new songs, holiday music and even jazz.

Back row from left: Barbara Oswald, Judy Stickney, Sue Downing, Jan Gunzleman and Kathy Arent. Front row: Marilyn Hambly, Ruth McVey, and Barbara Church.

Their performance begins at 3:00pm; mansion doors open at 2:30pm. Mansion closes at 5pm.

A limited amount of reserved seats are available at the following prices:
Adults $12
Military/AAA Members $11

  • Transition into summer (Jun 26, '15)
    The to-plant list is getting shorter and we are beginning to transition into a summer-full of deadheading/staking/weeding/enjoying. Right on schedule too: we always aim to be *done by July 4th. (*No garden is ever done.) This week we got the last of the plants out of the greenhouse, tucked in a few final packs of seedlings here and […]
  • The longest days (Jun 19, '15)
    June is full to bursting. Every plant that isn’t already blooming to beat the band is growing gangbusters (weeds included), and to say there’s a lot to do would be the understatement of the season.The long days leading up to the longest have been so busy that I have been feeling ready for a weekend as early as Tuesday. –Monday afternoon, even.
