Next Up – Love Knots
On Saturday March 7th we are planning to offer the newest in our set of the Love Knots cabaret performances. A group of eight drawn from the Bach Choir have put together a set of wonderful pieces from the cabaret repertoire. These include well-known as well as recently discovered gems in the genre.
There are songs arranged for the whole group as well as solos and duets. Some are accompanied and others are a cappella. Past performances by the Love Knots gang have been very well-received and we expect this year’s edition to be equally stong. Stay tuned for info on where the event will be held, but put Saturday, March 7, 2015 on you calendar now for a delightful evening!
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.
