DARIEN, Conn. — Join this event in the Louise Parker Berry Community Room Sunday, Dec. 7, at 5 p.m. as they enjoy a mix of holiday tunes and pop music favorites from local a cappella group Acabella.

Acabella was founded in 2001 by two friends who had recently moved to Darien and were eager to sing a cappella music, as they had done in college. The group was named Acabella, which combines the musical term, a cappella, which means unaccompanied by musical instruments, and bella, the Italian word for beautiful.

The group is currently directed by Heather Raker, one of its founders, and Carolyn Woodberry, who has been singing with the group since its inception.

Acabella includes 12 women from the lower Fairfield County area. Membership in the group is by audition, including musical exercises and a solo performance. Members’ musical backgrounds include singing in undergraduate and graduate a cappella groups and various choirs, as well as performing in musical theater, bands and coffeehouses (and the shower, of course.).

Refreshments will be served.

Additional parking for evening and weekend library programs is available at Thorndal Circle, behind Nielsen’s.
