The boys of Bound to Sing will sing not about Christmas trees or snowy days for their fourth annual winter concert, but about All Creatures Great and Small.
The free concert will be at 5 p.m. Saturday at St. Thaddeus Episcopal Church, 125 Pendleton St. S.W.; donations will be accepted.
The 19-member auditioned choir of boys with unchanged voices will sing about ducks, hounds, panthers, pigeons, donkeys and cockroaches.
The choir began in 2012 as part of South Boundary’s Boys Choirs of Aiken County program.
South Boundary’s co-founder and director Bill Riehl, who was involved with Bound to Sing, passed away on Nov. 24.
Bound to Sing is dedicating its winter concert to his memory.
“(He) was particularly passionate about creating an environment in which boys become excited about choral music,” said director James Bennett.
Bennett is the associate minister in music and worship at Aiken’s First Baptist Church; the choir’s accompanist is Joyce English, a former music teacher.
