The Old Rittenhouse Inn Singers are releasing their 3rd CD, and it will arrive just in time for the Holidays. The recording, entitled “Sing A New Song,” features 21 tracks of holiday music that was recorded last winter at Bayfield’s Holy Family Catholic Church.
The Choral group was created in the mid-1970’s by Old Rittenhouse Innkeepers Jerry and Mary Phillips, former music teachers who longed to create a “Madrigal Dinner” at their Inn for the holiday season. Their first “Wassail Dinner Concert was a huge success, and started a tradition that has lasted nearly 40 years.
During that journey, the Old Rittenhouse Inn Singers have performed hundreds of live concerts at the Inn, at various churches and community centers, and also at the annual Bayfield Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony (held Nov. 29 this year).
Choral Director Jerry Phillips says, “this new CD represents where the Old Rittenhouse Inn Singers are today: a seasoned, professional group that has been around for almost 40 years. This group has logged hundreds of performances, and they are no strangers to the recording process, so everything went very smoothly. We had a lot of fun, and I think it shows.”
The new release is scheduled to arrive at the Inn on December 8, a few days after the start of our Wassail Dinner Concert season. It is available for purchase at the Old Rittenhouse Inn and online at www.rittenhouseinn.com.
