Concordia Consort, Ensemble-in-Residence at Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord, presents its newest program, “Back to the Future — Beyond Early Music” on Sunday, April 21 at 3 PM in the Parish Hall at Trinity Episcopal Church in Concord (please enter by the River Street doors).
Guest soprano Eileen Cecelia Callahan, who began her singing career in Trinity’s youth choir many years ago, is featured in this program of songs and instrumental works spanning the Classical era to the 20th century. Ms. Callahan will sing a desperate aria by Beethoven, songs of love by Mendelssohn, Schumann. Brahms and Grieg, and broken-hearted lament by Rave,l accompanied by recorder consort.
The instrumental ensemble, directed by Sheila Beardslee, will perform quartets, trios and fugues by Mozart and Haydn, Mendelssohn and Chopin, Brahms and Tchaikovsky, ending in the 20th century with Shostakovich, Reger, and Leenhouts. “This has been a joy to learn that this later, almost ‘modern’ music works so well on recorders. It has certainly broadened our horizons to embrace this unusual repertoire for our instruments. Please join us on this wonderful path of discovery!”
