Album Notes
THE THREE MARYS have been wowing Provincetown audiences with their glorious voices, their intricate harmonies, and their unique blend of humor and politics since their first appearance back in 1999. But unless you've traveled to their hometown out at the end of Cape Cod, you've probably never heard of them. Now, with the release of their debut recording and their plans to begin touring, that's about to change.

It takes some people awhile to get it, but in Provincetown "Mary" is frequently a man's name. In this case the man is Jon Arterton, the founder and musical arranger of the proudly gay a cappella group, THE FLIRTATIONS. For nearly a decade Jon led eleven different incarnations of "The Flirts" around the world, singing in such places as Carnegie Hall and Yankee Stadium, on HBO and Good Morning America, and in the film PHILADELPHIA. The other Marys - Mary Abt and Mary Jo Paranzino - performed for many years in the OUT musical group DESTINY, and have been life-partners since meeting in college twenty-six years ago.

Their DEBUT DISC, The Three Marys, contains an eclectic mix of rock, jazz, and folk music; rousing political anthems; original songs by Paranzino; and even the classical strains of Vivaldi. Recorded at Provincetown's historic Universalist Meeting House with John Thomas at the Steinway, several of the cuts are performed in front of an enthusiastic live audience.

The group is also well-known for its popular VOCAL WORKSHOPS, offered both at their Music Camp on Cape Cod, and in some of the cities they give concerts. As singers, choir directors and teachers, all three have had lifetimes of experience in vocal music - both classical and popular. Arterton holds a Master's Degree in choral conducting from the New England Conservatory of Music, and Abt and Paranzino are music major graduates of Edinboro University. Paranzino teaches voice privately and is director of Provincetown's Meeting House Choir, and Abt is the music teacher at Truro Central Elementary School. Their website has all the details -

"A performance by The Three Marys has to be one of the most visceral, entertaining and moving experiences in town." - Provincetown Magazine

"Their performance is empowering and wholly entertaining.
They feel like a clan reunited." - The Provincetown Banner

"The Three Marys are well-known to Provincetown audiences for their upbeat, entertaining and powerful performances." - The Advocate
