The Sunsetters are a Somerville High School traveling singing and dancing group organized by the Youth Arts coordinator, Jimmy Del Ponte, who perform modern renditions of classic Broadway and popular dance tunes.
The group began in the 1970s and performed for 20 years before a hiatus, until Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone reinstated the group in 2004. The group of 19, aged 11 to 18, is available to sing show tunes and contemporary pop songs at sunset!
