King David of Arthur Honegger
To round off the season we offer King David of Arthur Honegger. Titled a “dramatic psalm” this retelling of le roi David consists of twenty-seven movements across three parts, and includes actors and dramatic elements interspersed with the music. Honegger’s use of several musical styles ranging from Gregorian chant to Baroque to jazz allowed him to make a serious contribution to the neoclassical era. Performances will be at St. Nicholas Cathedral, Oakland on April 25 and 26, 2015. Get your tickets here
BACHday Bash is coming!
The 7th Annual BACHday Bash will take place on Thursday, May 14th at the National Aviary on the Northside. This year we are switching things up and holding the event on a Thursday and at a new and different site. In addition to a live and silent auction, there will be great food and drink, including a new BACHtini.
Along with tours of the terrific exhibits there will be musical entertainment and dancing to round out the evening. Tickets are available for both the VIP early reception and the Bash itself. There are also “early bird” discounts for those who purchase tickets by April 23rd.
Plan now to join us at the fabulous National Aviary for a really nice evening and a chance to support the Bach Choir.
