CANTON — When his choral group disbanded several years ago, Robert M. DeGraaff realized how much he missed singing.

So the retired St. Lawrence University English professor decided to start a new chamber group and the outcome has been even better than he imagined.
“We’ve gelled really well together,” Mr. DeGraaff said.
“We’re hoping to get a good turnout,” Mr. DeGraaff said. “We’re going to have a variety of a capella music from the 16th century to the present.”
Members are sopranos Jennifer Vincent-Barwood, Lenore VanderZee and Camilla Ammirati; altos Sarah Gates and Julie Pomainville; tenors Alan Wioskowski, Christopher Rediehs, Rob Carr and Mr. DeGraaff, who serves as manager, and basses Phillip Shatraw, Juan Ponce-Vazquez and Trevor White.
“I think we’re filling a cultural niche,” Mr. DeGraaff said, “I think it’s a good community service, and we’re also having fun singing.
