There are some great summer activities coming up in and around Boston starting this weekend. Take a look and see what’s coming, I have some fun things on the docket.
Join The Seraphim Singers as we present a concert of sacred poetry in choral settings. We’ll be performing in two of greater Boston’s beautiful churches, First Church Congregational on Garden Street in Cambridge and St. Cecilia Parish in Boston.
This Sunday Cantilena will perform their second concert of the season at 4:00pm in Arlington, MA. Josh Lawton, organist and choirmaster of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Central Sq, Cambridge will accompany the group.
Spring Concert: Sunday, May 4th, 4 p.m.
Immovable Objects, Irresistible Forces: Songs of Human and Natural Wonders
Cantilena performs a variety of songs for women’s voices about forces of nature, human endurance, and triumph over personal challenges. Compositions range from Romantic to Modern, featuring works by Franz Schubert, Emma Lou Diemer, and Ron Jeffers. Experience Jonathan Pieslak’s energetic “Solar Flares” set to Romanian poetry, Susan Borwick’s bluesy setting of a famous speech by Sojourner Truth, Carol Barnett’s raucous and lusty interpretation of Dorothy Parker’s sarcastic “Song of Perfect Propriety,” and music sung by women imprisoned during WWII in Sumatra as memorably depicted in the film “Paradise Road.”
