Live Arts Maryland: Chamber Music at St. Anne's
Saturday, March 9, 2013 | Start Time: 8:00 PM
St. Anne's Church | Annapolis
The Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus is joined by members of the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra for an evening of music conducted by J. Ernest Green. The centerpiece of these concerts is “Musikalische Exequien” by Heinrich Schütz, a 17th century German composer and one of the best prior to JS Bach.
It is not by chance that the Chorale premiere of this work will be at St. Anne’s, an historic building that has some of the finest acoustics in the region. Mr. Green will make the most of this space with this piece’s double choruses.
On Saturday night at 7 p.m., Mr. Green will give a pre-concert talk about this piece and the others on the program in the church. Those attending should sit in the first pews of the church.
