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

  • Stop and smell the daffodils (May 08, '15)
    Of all the seasons, spring is the one that puts every sense on high alert. We’re all eyes for the colors, have sharp ears for frog and bird songs (we heard the orioles this week), and those of us not plagued by allergies have been breathing so deeply to catch every scent we’re getting lightheaded. Or is it […]

      In April 1910 Bessie and William McKee, with Marjorie and 11-year old Augustine, took a 2-month long trip to Europe taking in the major cities and traveling first-class all the way.  They sailed on Cunard’s R.M.S.
