Madrigal Fest and Highlights of Scott Metcalfe Workshop
Dear one and all, a reminder that we will be performing at “Madrigal Fest”, hosted by the Winchester High School Chamber Singers this SATURDAY, March 19th at 7:30pm at the Winchester Town Hall Auditorium (directions on Events page). This annual performance features groups from around the Boston area that tend to specialize in Renaissance and classical works. This year we are privileged to join, Cantilena, a women’s chorus based in Arlington, MA and the New England Conservatory Washburn Chamber Choir as guests in this unique celebration of older music. As usual, the Winchester High School Octets and my high school a cappella group, the Winchester High School Chamber Singers will be showcasing their repertoire. This is always a fantastic event, and I strongly suggest that you attend.
In other news: For those of you who were able to attend the Blue Heron Renaissance Choir’s concert at BC on Tuesday, wasn’t it amazing!? Blue Heron’s tuning, energy and musicality is second to none. It provided us the audience with a spiritual transcendence as were were taken on a journey through the life of Tomas Luis de Victoria and heard some of the last notes that he composed. Again, it was a true pleasure to be a part of this concert on Tuesday. (We will be singing the Kyrie from Victoria’s 1605 Requiem on Saturday).
Lastly, a while back, @BC (the multimedia division of Boston College Magazine) videotaped our workshop with Scott Metcalfe and was going to put together a short film showing highlights of our workshop. This film has since been completed and is available for viewing on @BC’s website. You get to hear Scott critiques, us singing and lastly, a mega-compliment from Scott at the end. Enjoy…
