Recital and Evensong, for the Feast of Hildegard von Bingen
The dynamic duo is at it again! We're very excited to kick off the Music At St. David's Music Series by revisiting Lori Laitman's song cycle, Living In The Body, paired with a performance of Joan Tower's Wings for solo saxophone.
Description: "A recital and festival Evensong celebrating Hildegard von Bingen and featuring music of Joan Tower, Lori Laitman, Sally Beamish, and the world premiere Amy Williams’ Brigid’s Flame.
The St. David’s 2017-2018 Music Series opens on September 17 at 4:30 with a festival recital and Evensong dedicated to the first recorded composer in the Western canon, Hildegard von Bingen. Her ecstatic chants and poetry set the tone of this musical event, which begins with a recital by saxophonist Tyrone Page, who will perform Joan Tower’s Wings. Mr. Page is joined by mezzo-soprano Taylor Boykins for the performance of Lori Laitman’s song cycle Living in the Body. The Service of Evensong follows at 5:00 pm, including the American premiere of Scottish composer Sally Beamish’s setting of the Magnificat and Nunc Dimittis canticles, St. Catherine’s Service, performed by the Choir of St David’s. The Choir also presents the world premiere Brigid’s Flame, by Pittsburgh-based composer Amy Williams, based on ancient Irish texts.
This is event is free and open to the public. A suggested donation ($15 general admission; $10 students/retirees; no obligation for children 12 and under) benefits the artists and the music series." - Music At St. David's
