PB&J Presents: Magical Music – cost: FREE
Abracadabra! Children will discover their inner MAGICIAN along with their inner MUSICIAN during this enchanting concert featuring the cello, flute and piano. You will be spellbound as magic and music come together in this free, family friendly program.
November 18, 3 pm – “Same text, New tunes!”
Lyrics haven’t changed but composers across time have put their sound with these familiar words. Maybe you’re a purist who likes the lyrics set in the old styles. Maybe you prefer the new sound of contemporary music or the harmonies of jazz. This concert has it all.
We will sing traditional settings of Ave verum corpus by William Byrd and W. A. Mozart; Messe basse by Gabriel Fauré; and four madrigals by John Bennet, Orlando Gibbons, and Thomas Morley and then jazz settings of the mass text by Will Todd and madrigals by Bob Chilcott, accompanied by a jazz trio.
Tickets will be available in October.
Sponsored by the Northern Kentucky Community Chorus and Lakeside Presbyterian Church
Conducted by Stephanie Nash, Director of Music at Lakeside Presbyterian Church and Artistic Director of the Northern Kentucky Community Chorus, you will spend the evening singing Part One of Handel’s Messiah, a musical staple of every Christmas season. Accompanied by professional instrumentalists and soloists, you will sing the chorus movements. You may bring your own score or once you have registered a PDF score will be emailed to you. A freewill offering will be collected for a local charity organization and a reception will follow the performance. Registration for your reserved seating is open from November 10 – December 1. If we still have space available after December 1st, we will open seating for non-singers.
March 16, 3 pm – “Blessed are they”
This concert opens with the a cappella piece Pilgrims’ Hymn by Stephen Paulus and then moves to Maurice Duruflé’s Requiem, a chant-based setting of the traditional requiem text accompanied by organ with mezzo-soprano and baritone soloists. We will close the concert with Patrick Hawes’ new setting of Beatitudes with piano.
