Go out and get some culture! Concerts for YOU.

I have concert listings.  Lots of concert listings.  These are upcoming concerts that I’m not performing in but will try to attend.  You should try to go as well.  Music is good for the soul.  Also, Bach rocks.  And, there may be cake.

First on the agenda, Musical Offering.

Musical Offering - Baroque Chamber Ensemble

March is a Bach birthday month. This past March 8 was the 300th anniversary of C.P.E. Bach’s birth, and March 21 was J.S. Bach’s birthday. A toast to father and son!

Upcoming Performances

Next weekend we celebrate C.P.E. Bach’s birthday with a special concert in the Pusey Room at The Memorial Church. Join us for some birthday cake and great music! For further details, click here.
Sunday, March 30, 6 pm Tickets

Mark your calendars for the last concert of our season. On May 31 and June 1 we will perform more C.P.E. Bach, Telemann, and the much-loved G-major gamba sonata of J.S. Bach. For further details, click here.

And next, The Seraphim Singers.

La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc
Following their tradition of innovative programming, The Seraphim Singers, in collaboration with organist Peter Krasinski, provide choral elaboration and improvised organ accompaniment to the 1928 French silent film La Passion de Jeanne d’Arc. Based on the actual trial record of Joan of Arc, the film of Carl Theodor Dreyer is widely regarded as a landmark of cinema. Click here for a repertoire list and program notes.

With Peter Krasinski, organ, International Sonic Artist.

And, of course, just like earlier this month, we have Open Mic Opera.  Come on out after Easter is over and sing some secular music.  From the good folks at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Cambridge.

Tuesday, April 22, 2014, starting at 7:00 pm, at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 838 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, the weekly “Tuesday Nights” concert series presents Open Mic Opera.  Local opera singers, younger and older, amateur and professional, are invited to sing their hearts out.  Collaborative pianist Juliet Cunningham, who has accompanied opera, oratorio and musical theater singers (and produced operas with her Janus Opera Company) will play whatever you bring.  And the general public is invited to come and listen.  Suggested donation of $10 at the door.

Have anything I should add here?  Have an upcoming concert that needs publicity?  Let me know in the comments.
