Apparently a lot of the people I know are making a lot of music in the next few weeks. I’ve posted everything I know about below. If I’ve forgotten anything please let me know. I encourage you all to attend everything you can, I know at least one person involved in each of the below and they’re all great.
First off, Teri is back with Capella Clausura. They’re performing May 12th, 19th, and 20th all over the greater Boston area.
If you have some free time on the evening of May 16th I highly encourage you to attend this event.
And moving away from the classical side of things for a moment…
David Gilmore and Andy Emler
featuring François Moutin and Marque Gilmore
The Fenway Center, Northeastern University
77 Stephen Street, Boston
May 16, 2012 – 8:00 pm
This concert titled, Cosmic Transits will showcase the jazz talents of David Gilmore and Andy Emler. French musician, François Moutin whose “bass chops are practically unparalleled” and Marque Gilmore will also be featured. This event is made possible by the French American Jazz Exchange and the French American Cultural Exchange.
David and Marque Gilmore are the sons of our superbly talented and wonderful landlord and this concert is going to be amazing. Geoff has a mandatory police meeting that night and I have a rehearsal, but I am hoping to be able to make at least part of the evening. It should be absolutely outstanding.
Next, one of my very favorite people and also one of my very favorite singers, Taras, is soloing with Coro Allegro in the Rachmaninoff Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom. It is on May 19th. This one will be great and it isn’t done nearly as often as Rachmaninoff’s All-Night Vespers.
In case you are slightly farther afield on the 19th, Matt is playing in Wilmington, DE and bringing us some gorgeous Harpsichord music.
Saturday, May 19, 3:00 PM
Suites by Matthew Locke, Elisabeth Jacquet de La Guerre, J. S. Bach
And, in case you missed it in my previous post, there is my concert on the 20th.
That’s it for now, folks. Hope to see you on the 20th.
