The Very Merry Dickens Carolers is comprised of professional singers who love the music of the season and enjoy bringing the season home to you. We have been invited into people's homes as well as corporate and public events to perform our library of Christmas music written in four-part harmony for a luscious, rich sounds. All our numbers are performed a cappella. Notable performances include Santa’s Parade at the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI, entertaining the crowds at The Today Show and in Central Park in New York City, Blithewold Mansion in Bristol, R.I., New Bedford, Mass. AHA Festival and several Candlelight Strolls in Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
What to Expect
The Very Merry Dickens Carolers doesn't just sing the music - we perform it and we encourage audience participation where it is welcome.
We provide a variety of performances. We can be background music during a cocktail hour or event as well as the featured entertainment for a meeting or party.
As featured entertainment, we engage the audience and invite them to sing with us if they'd like to. We firmly believe that Christmas music should be sung and enjoyed by all.
We love Christmas Music and want to share it with everyone!
Created in 2004, the Very Merry Dickens Carolers (VMDC) is entering its 11th season entertaining a wide variety of people from New Hampshire to New York. For the past four seasons, VMDC has been under the direction of Louise Tetreault who joined the company in 2005 as a caroler.
VMDC sings in 4-part a cappella harmony (SATB). A majority of the arrangements in our repertoire were created specifically for our group and are copyrighted. In all, our repertoire contains about 50 secular and non-secular songs in a variety of styles including traditional, doo wop, swing, and jazz.
Additional Booking Notes
We do not typically use microphones or sound equipment. If your venue is very spacious, or is expected to be very loud, microphones will be needed. We do not provide this equipment.
We recommend you provide 4 microphones that can be places close together so the singers can hear each other. The beauty of a cappella harmony is the blend and being near other is essential for a great blend.
