Grace Episcopal Church

Providence, Rhode Island

Spring -at last- and love is in the air!  Or so we’re supposed to believe: in reality, love is much more complicated.  In this concert, we explore musical expressions of love in many guises: youthful, steadfast, waning, passionate, unrequited, forbidden… These stylistically diverse settings of equally diverse texts resonate with our own experiences of the exhilarating, bewildering, and -at times- painful experiences of loving and being loved.

St. Columba's Chapel

Middletown, Rhode Island

This concert explores 3 styles of song, each born under very different circumstances. "Madrigals" -the equivalent of pop music in Renaissance Europe- commonly highlight the beginnings and endings of romantic entanglements (some things never change!), often in a characteristically lighthearted manner. In contrast, the dehumanizing depravity of the transatlantic slave trade gave rise to the "Spiritual" - a musical and cultural tradition born of insistent dignity and relentless hope in the midst of great suffering. What we call "Folk Songs" encompasses a dazzling variety of other traditions the world over. What knits folk songs together is their informal origins: they are created, sustained, and reimagined not by powerful elites, but by everyday people.

Songs of the Nelson Eddy

Sunday, October 6, 2016 at 2:30pm

Chepachet Baptist Church 

Chepachet, Rhode Island

A famous 20th century singer and Hollywood star, Eddy was born in Providence, Rhode Island, and his family had deep roots in northwest Rhode Island, including Chepachet. To honor Eddy, we have invited Amanda Santo, Arielle Rogers, and Jason Shealy to bring you a selection of some of Eddy's most memorable songs from the wide range of musical traditions he worked with: Broadway musicals, Gilbert and Sullivan, classical opera, folk songs, and church hymns. Our selection will therefore be "eclectic" (as the critics say) — in the true meaning of the term — excellent examples from many traditions.
