A Christmas Fanfare - '16
Meistersingers will be bringing out the brass and timpani with performances of The Rutter Gloria, The Pinkham Christmas Cantata, O Magnum Mysterium by Gabrieli and La Rocca, Do You Hear What I Hear and many others. Don't miss this very special glorious performance. Nothing brings in the excitement of the holiday like brass and drum. And the voices of Meistersingers!
Songs for a Romantic Evening - Spring '17
Not only are most of the songs focusing on the concept of love filled with truly amazing poetry, but all are from the Romantic period (1800-1890) which was marked by an appreciation for all things emotional. Not only love, but nature, the past, relationships, and even loneliness, death, and fear were all experiences to be explored, understood and discussed.
Face to Face: Howells & Martin - Summer '17
Another in our very popular "Face to Face" series. Comparing the a cappella Requiem of Herbert Howells, written in 1936 for his deceased son, and not released until 1980 to the a cappella double-chorus Martin Mass written for this father in the 1920's and not released until 1972.
Two very powerful, dramatic and emotional pieces that must be heard to fully appreciate.
