Weekend Concert Calendar, 2/19/09

It's just about to hit cabin-fever time. What better way to fight it than going to see some live music? Admittedly this weekend is a little thin. Maybe it's because of the Academy Awards? But it's not like those take up the whole weekend. Let me know if I missed anything.


The Boston Conservatory Orchestra and Chorale under the direction of Dr. William Cutter will perform Schubert's Overture in D; Beethoven's Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage; and Mozart's Regina Coeli and Kyrie. The concert will be at Sanders Theatre, 45 Quincy St, Cambridge.


There's plenty of good stuff going on, but no choral music! (Feel free to comment if I'm wrong about this.)


Go hear the King's Chapel Choir at 5 pm. They'll be presenting "Night of Snow: A Cappella Works by Poulenc." Works on the program will include Un Soir de Neige, Quatre motets pour le temps de Noël, and excerpts from Figure humaine, Sept chansons, Chansons françaises, and the Messe en sol majeur. This will be at King's Chapel, located at the corner of Tremont and School Sts. in downtown Boston. And don't forget to check out my interview with director Heinrich Christiansen!

Also late Sunday afternoon, Exsultemus will present a program of Schütz. Works on the program include Kleine geistlich Konzerte (1636, 1639), Cantiones sacrae (1625), and Symphonie sacrae (1629, 1647, 1650). This will be at the First Lutheran Church, 299 Berkeley St., Boston.


  1. Public school vacation week. Audiences and performers are all off skiing, apparently.

  2. Aha! You are wise. That must be it.
