I am singing myself this weekend, and you should come and hear me! Schola Cantorum is going to be performing Dufay's Missa Ecce Ancilla Domini, as well as motets by Victoria, Lassus, and Josquin. We will be singing at St. John's in Boston at 8 pm on Saturday, and at my own church, First Parish Cohasset, at 3 pm on Sunday. Please come!
Friday: Go check out the Oriana Consort, which will be singing a program called "The Austria/Brooklyn Connection." Among many other exciting pieces, they will be performing Copland's In The Beginning, which is a really fantastic work if you have never heard it. At 8 pm at the First Lutheran Church of Boston.
Saturday: Wow, Saturday is BUSY! There is a lot of crazy-awesome stuff going on. Naturally you should come and hear me sing with Schola Cantorum. But earlier in the afternoon, you should also to go the Boston Cecilia benefit concert for Japan featuring Fauré Requiem. That will be at 3 pm at Trinity Church in Copley Square, Boston, and all proceeds will go to survivors of the Japan earthquake. They are also having a raffle featuring some very cool prizes. (You could win an Anthology CD, for one, but I am really coveting the "17-course Chef's Tasting menu with sake pairings for two, at Boston's o ya." Holy wow.)
Also on Saturday: Blue Heron singing workshop, Boston Children's Chorus, Boston College University Chorale, Boston College's Voices of Imani, Boston Conservatory Chorale, Emmanuel Music and the Spectrum Singers (Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress), Exsultemus, Harvard Chamber Singers, Marsh Chapel Choir and Collegium (Bach's St. Matthew Passion).
Sunday: I rarely mention pop a cappella on this blog, not because I don't thoroughly enjoy it, but because there's so much of it in Boston that I can't do it justice. However, this Sunday is the 27th Annual Boston Harmony Sweepstakes at Tufts, one of the major a cappella events of the year and sure to be a good time. 2 pm on the Tufts campus - sure to sell out, so you might want to call ahead!
Also on Sunday: Boston Conservatory Women's Chorus.
