Sherburne Community Chorus at Earlville Opera House
The Sherburne Community Chorus lends their talents to the Earlville Opera House for a fundraiser entitled “DISTANT LANDS: Songs and Stories of Freedom”, hosted by Hugh C. Humphreys with music by the Sherburne Community Chorus under the direction of Anne Caton. Two performanes will be staged at the historic Earlville Opera House on June 8 and 97 pm. Tickets are $10 with proceeds benefiting the Sherburne Community Chorus, EOH and the National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum.
Sherburne Community Chorus has provided concerts for the region since it was established and is currently directed by Anne Caton. At present, the group has members representing the communities of Morrisville, Eaton, Hamilton, Earlville, Sherburne, Smyrna, Norwich, Oxford and other outlying areas.
The National Abolition Hall of Fame and Museum honors antislavery, their work to end slavery, the legacy of that struggle, and strives to complete the second and ongoing abolition- the moral conviction to end racism.  The Museum is located at 5255 Pleasant Valley Road, Peterboro, for more information visit

Narrated by Hugh C. Humphreys, the program features a variety of choral music from different times and places sung by the 45 member Sherburne Community Chorus. As a part of the second act, Hugh will present his fictional story about a Mexican immigrant, entitled “Pedro”. Various fine Chenango Valley artists will pitch in with vocal and instrumental solos including Max Smith, Jenny Larchar, Alyssa Jutting, Doug Keith, and Allie Rehn. Rehearsals have been going on for several months and a grand time is anticipated for every one of our theater-goers!
The Earlville Opera House is located at 18 East Main Street in the quaint Village of Earlville. Tickets can be purchased on line at, or by calling (315) 691-3550.
EOH events are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the New York State Legislature and the generosity of EOH members.
