AVON: Avon Library’s Winter Music Series presents a favorite local group, the KC Sisters said a release from Friends of the Avon Library.
The Friends of the Avon Library announce a rescheduled performance date in their popular music series, “Sundays at Three” on Sunday, Feb. 23 with a performance by the KC Sisters, who have music in their DNA. The girls were raised by two musicians and introduced to multiple genres of music from Classical, Rock & Roll, Country, Gospel, Folk, R&B and Jazz. Aside from their a cappella voices that harmonize on their repertoire of selections, each girl plays multiple instruments including the piano, guitar, ukulele, violin, bass, cello and drums.
In their EP, “Walk With Me” the entire family contributed on the song selection as well as the originals. Their father Chris, a professor of jazz studies, is the music director, songwriter, arranger, composer and pianist. Jennifer, besides manager for the KC Sisters, contributes her violin talents to the group, and oversees the music program at a school for gifted children in Connecticut. The girls seemed to all find their comfort zone in their music and often times find themselves on the right side of the music they choose to perform. Each girl contributes to the writing of a song, which at times can be challenging, having so many cooks in the kitchen. Somehow they make it work and the song matures into a something they all enjoy performing.
The KC Sisters can be seen on the new Nickelodeon show “America’s Most Musical Family” which was recorded in Hollywood during the summer of 2019. They are currently working on a new album of original as well as a tribute album and documentary dedicated to the girl groups of the 1960s.
All are welcome to this event in the Community Room of the Avon Free Public Library, 281 Country Club Road, Avon. Free tickets will be available at 2:15 p.m. on the day of the performance with seating starting at 2:30 p.m. The one-hour program begins at 3 p.m. The Friends of the Library will be serving home-baked goods and there will be an opportunity to meet the artist following the performance.
