Perhaps you can begin marking your calendars
with the special music programs planned for this 2016 season.
Below is a list for handy reference.
Thursday, March 3, 2016, 7:30 pm, the famous Concordia College Choir, under the direction of René Clausen, will present a concert that you do not want to miss. The choir is being sponsored by the Beloit Memorial High School choral program under the direction of Jacob Truby.
Thursday, March 10, 2016, at 1 pm, the music club Treble Clef will present a midday concert. The two performers are David Newman, piano, and Max Yount, organ. Although a club meeting, I am sure guests are invited.
Saturday, March 19, 2016, 7 pm, and again Sunday morning at 10 am, the River of Life Methodist Choir will return under the direction of Lois Ulvin, to present the Passion/Easter season cantata in our beautiful meeting space. Choir, soloists, readers and a small orchestra will be featured in this much anticipated event. Judy Paddock, piano, and Max Yount, organ, will play prelude and postlude music.
Our season will come to a climax the last two weeks of April.
Sunday, April 17, 2016, 3 pm, MUSICA MAXIMA presents Ian Nie, piano, and the Turtle Creek Chamber Orchestra in its concert of student winners of the Nie Student Scholarship awards. This is an opportunity to hear these talented young people and to encourage them on their way. Donations will go to the scholarship fund.
One week later on Sunday, April 24, 2016, 3 pm, David Newman, piano, and his wind ensemble, Zephyr, will bring the Spring 2016 MUSICA MAXIMA series to a towering conclusion. These performers always amaze us with their virtuosity. A freewill offering will be taken.
All ages join in on the fun!
