Eucharist & Song: Musical Meditations on the Power of Wine April 15
Wine, music, fellowship, celebration, spiritual comfort: the associations among these experiences have long been of interest to composers, some of whose work comprise the program for this special TNR event. Before the concert, Ken Myers, host of the MARS HILL AUDIO Journal, will speak about how the experiences we enjoy of music and of wine harmonize with each other, suggesting a spiritual character within these two mysterious gifts. This concert is not a TNR subscription concert but is FREE and open to the public (donations welcome). April 15, 2018 at 3:00pm at First Presbyterian Church, Charlottesville.
Latin American Baroque
Music from New Spain May 12 & 13
Music of the baroque thrived in the New World as well as the Old. Spanish colonizers and missionaries taught native peoples to play European instruments and to compose in the baroque style. Joined by bass Peter Walker, Three Notch’d Road performs both instrumental and vocal works sung in the Nahuatl and Quechua languages in an exploration of this unique episode of musical transplantation and adaptation.
