Weekend Concert Calendar, 5/8/08, Part Deux

OK, finishing up the list for this weekend! The additional entries are almost all on Saturday of course, because apparently this Saturday is CRAZY for choral music.


On Saturday at 2 pm at Fanueil Hall the BCO and the Boston Children's Chorus are putting on a concert of music by Beethoven, Mozart, Handel, Haydn, and African-American and Native American songs followed by an instrument petting zoo. It's sold out, though. Too bad for you.

Saturday at 8 pm and Sunday at 3 pm the Harvard Bach Society Orchestra and the Dunster House Opera Society will present a semi-staged performance of Copland's opera The Tender Land. The location will be The Memorial Church, Harvard Yard, Cambridge.

Also on Saturday at 8 pm the Assabet Valley Master Singers will present The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace by Karl Jenkins (2000 Commission in England) based on the 15thC French song "L'Homme Arme." Texts include Tennyson, Kipling, the Koran, Christian mass, & the Mahabharata. This performance will be with the Algonquin Regional HS Chorus, and will be held at the Algonquin Regional High School, Northboro, MA.

At 7:30 in Peabody a group called simply the "Choral Art Society" will present Rachmaninoff's All-Night Vigil (aka the Vespers.) This will be at St. Vasilios Church in Peabody.

And at 7:30 that same day in Scituate another group simply called the "Choral Art Society" will perform "Czeching Into Vienna: Music of Dvorak, Schubert, and Brahms." This will be at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Scituate.


Not strictly choral, but at 3 pm in Pickman Hall at Longy there will be a vocal chamber music concert by members of the Vocal Ensemble Class. Music for voices & piano, flute, harp, trumpet, and violin by Bach, Caplet, Cornelius, Dvorak, Handel, Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Spohr, and others. This one is free!
