In 1967 the Junior League of Greenwich created The Grace Notes, an all-volunteer women's a cappella singing group with the purpose of providing therapeutic music to people in need of a little cheer. Now an independent, nonprofit organization, The Grace Notes is dedicated to bringing the joy of music to Greenwich and its surrounding communities. The group performs for audiences at senior living residences, elementary schools, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, civic organizations, special community events, and the occasional private event.
Our broad musical repertoire includes classics from The American Songbook, pop tunes, jazz standards, Motown, spirituals, country, Broadway hits, and holiday favorites. Almost all arrangements are written specifically for The Grace Notes, largely by local arrangers, including Cormac Bluestone, Alexander Constantine, David Johnson, Jon Hunt, Helen Bingamen, and Eileen Laurence.
Our season extends from September through May. Under the direction of Dr. Eric Martin, musical director, conductor, arranger, teacher, and musician par excellence, we rehearse weekly on Thursday mornings in Greenwich. The group performs twice a month, primarily in the daytime, in towns throughout lower Fairfield County (CT) and lower Westchester County (NY).
