Raising their voices

Published April 04. 2013 4:00AM

Fluency in language and song are traits to be admired in folks of any age. Consider, though, the very fine Voices on the Thames, a youth choir whose membership comprises kiddos grades two-through-eight and who come from New London County.

For their Fifth Spring Concert, taking place Sunday at the Second Congregational Church in New London, Voices on the Thames will perform three new works by the area's estimable composer/pianist/musical philanthropist, John Metz. Too, the chorus will sing music in Latin, Japanese and that most difficult lexicon of all - Pirate!

Light refreshments will be served after the performance.

Voices on the Thames, 2 p.m. Sunday, Second Congregational Church, 45 Broad St., New London; free; (860) 501-5551.
