Josquin Lebloitte (nicknamed Josquin des Prez) a Franco-Flemish composer (about 1450- 1521), has been described by many as being on a par with Michelangelo in architecture, painting and sculpture and to be the first master of the high Renaissance style of polyphonic vocal music that was emerging during his lifetime. Josquin wrote both sacred and secular music, and in all of the significant vocal forms of the age. Join the Chorale and enjoy the wonderful melodies and harmonies that are the roots of the music we know today. The Chorale will be joined by special guest instrumentalists and soloists who will bring this music of the ages to life.

Durst, James Work o' the Weavers/Celebrating America's Pioneering Folk Quartet History,
Music,
Performing Arts- Storytelling
Beginning in 1950 with their 2-sided hit single, Tzena Tzena & Goodnight Irene, the Weavers ignited popular interest in folk music. With a freshness and exuberance never before heard, they enjoyed surprising success until they were caught up in the hysteria of the Cold War anti-communist witch-hunts of McCarthism and HUAC, blacklisted and driven from the stage in 1952 at the height of their popularity. Their triumphant 1955 Carnegie Hall reunion concert and the Vanguard recording of the event gave heart to a generation and served to kindle the 'folk boom' of the '50s & '60s, providing a foundation upon which virtually every subsequent folk performer would build. WORK O' THE WEAVERS recalls their timely story and timeless songs. Adhering faithfully to the Weavers' original arrangements, WORK O' THE WEAVERS' (James Durst, David Bernz, Marthat Sandefer & Mark Murphy) repertoire includes the beloved familiar songs--as well as some the Weavers never sang, but might be singing were they still active today. Rousing, refreshing and relevant.
