Notable Public Performances
BOAK sings at the Melrose Mayoral Inauguration
Blue of a Kind serenaded Congressman Markey, Mayor Dolan, State Senator Clarke, State Representative Brodeur,
and various other dignitaries with "Walk Humbly Son" and "America the Beautiful". The new sound system at Memorial Hall
worked wonderfully. Thanks to MMTV the performance can be viewed on YouTube
Blue of a Kind sings the National Anthem at Fenway Park!!
Blue of a Kind sang the National Anthem at Fenway Park on Tuesday April 12, 2011, prior to the Red Sox 7:10PM home game.

Mayor's Emergency Fund Telethon
Blue of a Kind performed for the city of Melrose's Mayor's Emergency Fund Telethon on 19 December 2009.
We repeated our very successful performance of 2008 during which we sang a holiday song and a blues number
and met incoming pledges dollar-for-dollar while we sang. This year, we decided to put up 50 of the "To the Sky"
CDs as a challenge and give them away to the first 50 callers who pledged $50 or more. Rather than $2500,
in all of about 8 minutes, we raised nearly $5000.
Polymnia Choral Society
Blue of a Kind performed at Polymnia's 6 June, 2009 concert. A video of our performance of "Hawaiian War Chant" is
YouTube. A review of the concert can be found at the
WickedLocal.Com web site.
