CONCERT SERIES

2019 - 2020 Season

 

5KBRASS

 

Sunday, October 13, 2019

 

3:00 p.m.

 


 

5KBrass was formed as a collaboration of musicians from Miami University and the College-Conservatory of Music at the University of Cincinnati. Although its members now live far and wide - 5,000 (i.e., 5K) miles apart, they band together to provide audiences with a taste of the wide range of cultures present in music. Making its debut performance on our concert series, 5KBrass opens our 38th season with a flash of brass from Leonard Bernstein, Andre Previn, and more.


 

CINCINNATI YOUTH CHOIR

 

Sunday, November 10, 2019

 

3:00 p.m.

 

 

Cincinnati’s premiere youth choir, formerly called the Cincinnati Children’s Choir, last sang on our series in 2012, fresh off a gold medal win in the World Choir Games. With a name change to better reflect its membership, the CYC continues to be recognized for its excellence. Honored by Chorus America in 2018/2016 and voted City Beat’s best vocal arts group in 2017/2015, the Cincinnati Youth Choir, led by Founder Robyn Lana, brings youthful artistry and exuberance to our series.

This program, originally scheduled for last season’s series with Scot Woolley at the piano, is offered this

WESTWOOD FIRST CHANCEL

 

CHOIR & SOLOISTS

 

REQUIEM, by Johannes Brahms

 

Sunday, March 15, 2020

 

3:00 p.m.
 

As an offering for this Lenten season, the Westwood First Chancel Choir and Soloists, under the direction of Heather MacPhail, present “one of the glories of the choral repertory,” the Brahms Requiem. This is a requiem based not on the Latin Mass for the dead, but on the Lutheran Bible; it takes us from tears to joy; it offers not judgment, but comfort and hope; it prepares us for an everlasting life.


 

HEATHER MACPHAIL & FRIENDS

 

Sunday, April 26, 2020

 

3:00 p.m.
 

Westwood First organist/pianist Heather MacPhail will be joined by woodwind and string friends in a program of “Chamber Music Through the Ages.” Featured will be works from Handel through Gershwin, in duo, trio and quartet combinations with piano and organ. Classic styles, lyric melodies and spirited energy will combine for this lovely afternoon.

 

All events are free and open to the public.  Donations are gratefully accepted at the door.  A reception in Calvin Hall will follow most concerts.  For more information, call the music office at 661-6846, ext. 101.
