Weekend Concert Calendar, 1/8/09

Happy New Year!  There are distinctly fewer concerts in January, since everyone is still recovering from the December holiday music season, but there is still some very good stuff going on this week, although your options are a bit scant.

First of all, I myself am singing with Cappella Clausura on Sunday at 2 pm at Forsyth Chapel (in the Forest Hills Cemetary).  This will be a repeat of our October concert, where we presented a contrasting set of motets and madrigals by the same Renaissance composer.  Our January concert at Forsyth Chapel tends to fill up, so if you would like to come (and I hope you will!) then don't be late!


At 7:30, the Mizero Children of Rwanda stop by the Arlington Regent Theater on their "Forgiveness Tour."  The Boston Globe Calendar says, "These young cultural and peace ambassadors take audiences on a journey into the lives of the Rwandan people through music, dance, costumes and drumming."  (Click on the link, there's a nifty picture.)  The Regent Theater in Arlington is located at 7 Medford St., Arlington.

If you want to go a bit afield, Mermaid Music productions is putting on Amahl and the Night Visitors.  This will be on Friday at 8 pm at the Adams Memorial Opera House, 29 West Broadway, Derry, NH, and Sunday at 4 pm at Ste. Marie's Parish, 378 Notre Dame Ave, Manchester, NH.


I got nuthin'.  Stay home and bake some cookies.  When was the last time you did that, anyways?  


At 2:00 pm, Cappella Clausura presents "Before and After the Veil: Works by Aleotti" under the direction of Amelia LeClair.  This will be at Forsyth Chapel, 95 Forest Hills Ave, Jamaica Plain.

At 3:00 pm, the Nashoba Valley Chorale will present Beethoven's Mass in C, Brahms' Schicksalslied, and several works by Schutz under the direction of Anne Watson Born.  This will be at the Congregational Church of Littleton, 330 King St., Littleton.
