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

  • North Garden inventory (Jul 17, '15)
    I’m asked often enough to name my favorite plant and season that it’s a little strange that hardly anyone* ever asks which is my favorite garden. Not that I could possibly pick a favorite (the pollinator garden). But since I featured the Rose Garden (my other favorite) last week, I can’t let this week go by without giving Blithewold’s pièce de […]
  • Rose Garden inventory (Jul 10, '15)
    Thank goodness for rainy days. Without them, we stay outside and never get around to tidying the potting shed, defrosting the fridge, or keeping up with the paperwork. (Not to mention how happy the gardens are after a good downpour.) I’m grateful too that Betsy worked on the blog last week because aside from the pleasure of seeing Blithewold’s gardens […]
