The Lexington Pops Chorus Special Performance

As the Town of Lexington celebrates its 300th Anniversary and the Lexington Pops Chorus looks back over 30 years of presenting musical programs in Lexington, the two will be linked in a very special way through history and music at its Annual Winter Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, January 18 and 19 at Hancock Church located at 1912 Massachusetts Avenue, Lexington Center.  The "special way" will be the premier performance of a composition commissioned by the Pops Chorus entitled The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere.  The composition, inspired by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, was created by the talented and prolific New England composer, Gwyneth Walker, who happens to be a direct descendent of Paul Revere.  The Friday concert will be followed by a reception for the audience with Gwyneth Walker and Chorus members in the Church dining room.

Tickets: Adults $12 in advance, $15 at door; Children under 13, $5. To purchase please go to

The Lexington Pops Chorus, an adult nonprofit organization, is dedicated to the performance of varied, mixed-voice music for the benefit, education and enjoyment of its members and the surrounding communities.
