In 1967 the Greenwich Junior League created the Grace Notes to provide therapeutic music to people in need of a little cheer. This all-volunteer women's a cappella singing group is now an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the joy of music to Greenwich and its surrounding communities. The group performs for nursing homes, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, civic organizations, elementary schools, senior gatherings, and special events.
About Our Music
The Grace Notes sing a broad musical repertoire which includes classic oldies, jazz standards, pop tunes, 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.
And a Little Bit More About Us
Under the direction of Eric Martin, our musical director, conductor, arranger, teacher, and musician par excellence, The Grace Notes rehearse weekly on Thursday mornings in Greenwich. The group performs twice a month, September through May, primarily in the daytime, in communities throughout southwestern Connecticut and Westchester, NY.
The Grace Notes are also available for hire to sing at private parties.
