DON HAGAR and CESAR VUKSIC will both have pieces featured in a performance by The Brooklyn Conservatory Chorale, a group that explores and performs a rich variety of musical styles, a cappella and with orchestra, from the Renaissance to the present. There will be a performance Sunday, June 14, 3:00 p.m. at Lafayette Presbyterian Church, 85 South Oxford Street (at Lafayette), Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
This performance will feature music by Stephen Chatman, Aaron Copland, Claude Debussy, Josquin des Prez, Don Hagar, Clement Jannequin, Morten Lauridsen, Claudio Monteverdi, Randall Thompson, and Cesar Vuksic.
Christine Moore will perform CESAR VUKSIC‘s Nana for Mezzo, Cello, and Piano this Thursday, June 18 at Christ and St. Stephen’s Church in Manhattan, 120 West 69th Street, between Broadway and Columbus. The concert is an all-Spanish affair, with pieces by (in addition to Cesar): Federico García Lorca, Enrique Granados, Frederic Mompou, Mohammed Fairouz, Antón García Abril, and Joaquin Turina. The concert will be repeated in July in Granada, Spain. Suggested donation is $20 ($10 for students/seniors).
The NYCC in 2008-2009 — what a terrific season! There are too many countless people to thank, including our members, performers, producers, guests, donors, and so many others, each who contribute in ways large and small. For those who didn’t know, programs from our past several years are posted online at our website, www.nycomposerscircle.org. In the right-hand sidebar, click on “Prior Seasons.”
In the meantime, the 2009-2010 season is already taking shape and looks to be another very strong year. Hold the date of October 18 and watch for details on our special fundraiser concert. As well, keep your eye on the calendar section of the website for updates, and of course, on In The Loop. See you in September!
