The 2019- 2020 Concert Series will offer three concerts, preceded by a half-hour lecture, devoted to exploring parallelisms and differences in the treatment of ideas such as “cosmic music,” the natural world, and human tribulations in baroque Spanish and American music. Through these series, we offer the public a richly-textured overview of Spanish music and its projection into the New World, while highlighting a valuable part of New York City’s diverse cultural patrimony.
Eleven artists explore what it looks and feels like to have lives disrupted by Mother Nature and Father Time, and disrupted by us – through our power relationship decisions on a continuum of wages through war.
No cover, no minimum. Bring your axe to play, your ears to listen, and come for the hang!!
An afternoon of readings, familiar carols, and anthems for the season, led by the church choir, and assisted by handbells, string orchestra, and vocal and instrumental soloists. Seasonal refreshments will follow.
