The Berklee City Music Choir, under the direction of Berklee faculty member Nichelle Mungo, will have the honor of greeting the Newport Folk Festival crowd as they arrive on Sunday morning. The choir brings together some of the best school-age vocalists from the college’s national Berklee City Music Network of community schools. The City Music students come together in Boston from all across the country as part of the college’s annual Five Week Summer Performance Program.
As vocalist Kéren brings her Berklee career to a close this summer and eagerly awaits her future, she presents to you the plethora of knowledge and musical insight collected during her time here. Kéren will perform original material with her unequivocally dear and prodigiously talented family.
Two of Berklee's finest old-time and bluegrass bands hold forth at one of our favorite festivals. Lookout Mountain, composed of Jen Starsinic, Eric Law, and Lukas Pool, will represent the American Roots Music Program on the 2012 Grey Fox Bluegrass Festival.
