"Praise and Prost"
Our choir concerts on June 1st and 2nd offered a program full of diversity - both musical and thematic, as one can guess from the concert motto. “Praise” - a selection of sacred songs and spirituals by Palestrina, Berlioz, Fauré, Aguiar, Casals, Hayes, and Tin. “Prost” - songs about drinking, sociability, and parting by Offenbach and Brahms, as well as from the songbook of Irish folk music. Additional songs by Darmon Meader, and Clara Schumann, whose 200th birthday is celebrated this year, were topping off the program.
