Friday night is a big night this weekend; see below!
Friday: Anthology is having our first CD release party! We are extremely proud and excited - and relieved! - about the arrival of our self-titled debut CD. You should all come to our CD release party to celebrate with us (and perhaps pick up a few copies!) because it is free, and we will be singing some songs from the CD, and there will be free food! 8 pm at Third Life Studio in Union Square, Somerville. There is even free close parking. I hope to see you all there! (And if you have some truly unavoidable conflict, of course you can order a CD online. Just go to www.anthologyvoices.com and click on the CD link.)
Also in Friday: Nothing! I am not just trying to get rid of the competition, either; I know of no other choral gigs on Friday.
Saturday: On Saturday, why not check out the Seraphim Singers? They are performing a program called "Sacred North," featuring music of by Grieg, Nystedt, Rautavaara, and others, and pairing it with Samuel Barber's Prayers of Kierkegaard. They will be joined by Heinrich Christensen on the organ. Seraphim Singers are notable for programming extremely hard music; they started as a group of church musicians who wanted to sing all the music that was too hard for their church choirs to sing. They are always worth hearing, and on top of that I think modern Scandinavian choral music is some of the most inspired choral music being written right now. 8 pm at St. Paul's Catholic Church in Harvard Square; more details here.
Also on Saturday: Exsultemus, Voices Rising, Wellesley Choral Society.
Sunday: The Andover Choral Society is performing Beethoven's Missa Solemnis at 3 pm at the Rogers Center for the Arts at Merrimack College in North Andover. Beethoven! Missa Solemnis! Have you ever heard it in person? Then what are you waiting for?
Also on Sunday: Exsultemus.
