On Sunday, May 20th, The Chatham Music Club presents Mozart!
The Chatham Music Club concludes its season with a gala concert featuring vocal and instrumental solos and choral works by Mozart on Sunday, May 20 at St. Christopher’s Episcopal Church, 3:00 PM.
Local professional musicians, music teachers and serious amateurs will perform selections of Mozart’s music, ranging from operas to chamber music and sacred music. Eighteen different solo singers and instrumentalists will perform, as well as the Music Club chorus supported by an eight-piece orchestra.
“Mozart created an amazing range of music,” said Barbara Reed, club President. “This concert includes some pieces most people will never have heard, as well as a couple of his best-loved classics. What they all have in common is Mozart’s artistry and his ability to surprise the listener.” Arias from The Magic Flute, Don Giovanni, and Le Nozze de Figaro, selections from a flute concerto and from the Coronation Mass in C are just a few of the highlights.
This concert will also feature performances by three winners of the club’s annual scholarship competition. Cellist Noah Janowicz, soprano Rachel Corliss and pianist Lawrence Tang—local high school students—will perform their competition pieces. “These young musicians have demonstrated great abilities. We are sure our audience will enjoy them as much as the scholarship committee did.”
Admission is $25 (Students are free). A reception will follow the performance.
