The Cathedral Choir School of Delaware sings its Anglican repertoire on Saturday at the Delaware Art Museum.
The choir, composed of youth from an after-school program who perform with semiprofessional adult singers, will sing from noon to 1:15 p.m.
The singing troupe, established in 1883, provides enrichment such as professional choral training, piano and voice lessons, leadership development, tutoring, and one-on-one mentoring for youth. The choir has toured the U.S. and Europe.
On Sunday, see what happens when you give a dog a bowl of alphabet soup, as Theatreworks USA presents Martha Speaks at Landis Theater.
Based on the book series by author Susan Meddaugh and featured in the TV series Martha Speaks on PBS Kids, this is the story of a normal dog who eats alphabet soup that mysteriously goes not to her stomach but to her head. Martha is now able to talk, and quite outspokenly.
