Event: 'A DATE WITH DEBUSSY' Print
  Featured Events
Date: Saturday, October 20, 2012 - 7:00 pm

Dedicated to the memory of the Rev. Dr. Jack Mendelsohn (1918-2012)

 

 

On October 20th at 7 p.m. the Music Committee presents a concert of the music of Claude Debussy, in celebration of his 150th anniversary year.

 

The program will include transcriptions for woodwinds and piano of the “Children’s Corner Suite” and the “Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faun” performed by Carol Epple, flute, Elizabeth Connors, clarinet, and Bradford Conner, piano; “Trios Chansons” featuring the First Parish Choir; the haunting “Syrinx” performed on alto saxophone by Ian Carroll; vocal solos “Il pleure dans mon coeur” (“There is weeping in my heart”) and “La Belle au Bois dormant” (“Sleeping Beauty”) performed by Rachael Luther and Cynthia Mork; plus piano works performed by acclaimed pianist Yoko Hagino, including “L’isle joyeuse” and the stunningly beautiful “Reflets dans l’eau” (“Reflections in the water”) from “Images” Book 1.  Additional dance accompaniment provided by Helena Froehlich, artistic director of the dance ensemble CreationDance, along with projected images of Impressionist paintings will combine with the music to transport the audience to Debussy’s bygone world and complete the Impressionistic experience. Truly, a perfect autumn concert not to be missed!

 

 

 

Net proceeds will benefit Bedford Families in Transition with a suggested donation at the door of $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students, and free for age 12 and under. A reception with refreshments will follow.
