The Piedmont Singers of Central Virginia, an a cappella group that contains members from throughout the Central Virginia region — including Hampden-Sydney College Elliott Assistant Professor of Fine Arts and Director of Choral Activities Helena von Rueden — performed at Crawley Forum for a free concert Sept. 8. The theme, “Love and Madness,” led to a electrifying variety of different genres that included renditions of songs that ranged from the modern “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” and Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek” to American folk song “Poor Wayfaring Stranger” and an arrangement of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 18, “ Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day.”Breanna Phoenix, left, waits for the Piedmont Singers of Central Virginia performance with Abby Joyner, Katie Lucas and Ryan Flanagan.
