Weekend Concert Calendar, 5/3/12

Oh, man. It is one of the busiest choral weekends of the season, and I completely forgot about this yesterday - it's a busy weekend for me too! Rather than the usual, you are just going to get my picks for this weekend - one for each day.

On Friday, go see The Boston Cecilia and their program "Bright Lights on the Horizon." It's at 8 pm at First Church Cambridge, and among other awesome pieces it will feature a premiere of a new work by Scott Wheeler, inspired by Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes and called "Love Songs for Chorus and Piano Four Hands." This is maestro Teeters' last concert with Cecilia before he retires; not to be missed!
I have been hearing some great things about the rehearsals for the Back Bay Chorale's performance of Haydn's The Seasons, so on Saturday, go check that out! They will be at Sanders Theater in Cambridge at 8 pm, and this is going to be a wonderful rendition of that thrilling oratorio.

And on Sunday, there is NO other place to be than at First Parish Arlington, hearing Cantilena sing a program about "Making a Mess!" under my direction! We are going to sing about all kinds of messes, including shipwrecks, heartbreak, Armageddon, environmental disasters - you name it. It is a very fun program, and you won't want to miss it!
