Join us for Cecilia's Spring Concert!
Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 3:00pm All Saints Parish, Brookline
We will close our season with a program based around Aaron Copland’s tour-de-force setting of the creation story, In The Beginning, and also including works by Randall Thompson (Alleluia and Farewell), Samuel Barber (Reincarnations), Morten Lauridsen (Nocturnes) and two pieces by Stephen Paulus, who died in 2014. The program will also offer solo songs by Copland and Barber to round out this feast of 20th Century American music.
