Spero, Christine Spero Plays Nyro Music
Laura Nyro was the quintessential singer/songwriter/pianist. Her groundbreaking music crossed the genres of folk, rock and jazz and she was one of the most covered artists in the 1960's and 1970's (Eli's Coming, Stoned Soul Picnic, Wedding Bell Blues, Sweet Blindness). Her tragically premature passing in 1997 shocked her fans. Finally, in 2012 she was inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. The Christine Spero Group will bring their own kind of power to Laura Nyro's music. Christine Spero has loved Laura's music from a young age when she was given Eli and the Thirteenth Confession by a radio DJ friend. She was inspired by Laura's music to be bold in writing, singing and playing piano and was the Winner of the 2004 USA Songwriting Competition in the Jazz Category. Her CDs are listened to around the world. Joining Christine will be Elliot Spero on horns and percussion, Scott Petito on bass, and Peter O'Brien on drums. The group will also be performing some of Christine's original compositions. Christine will share stories about some of Laura's songs as well as her own.

LiMarzi, John BRAHMS - The Putnam Chorale Music
The Putnam Chorale, directed by Douglas Anderson, is pleased to present our winter program, A German Requiem, by Johannes Brahms. This piece is a large-scale work for chorus, orchestra, and a soprano and a baritone soloist. Composed between 1865 and 1868, this Requiem in the German language is thought to be a tribute to Brahms's mother who died in February 1865. Brahms assembled the libretto himself. In contrast to the traditional Roman Catholic Requiem Mass, which employs a standardized text in Latin, the text is derived from the German Luther Bible. Although the subject, being a Requiem, is grim, the MUSIC IS BEAUTIFUL and will surely delight any listener. Join us on Sunday December 2, 2012 at 3 pm at the Temple Beth Elohim, 31 Mt. Ebo Rd, North, Brewster, NY.$15, $12 Sr. and Student; Under 12 FREE. You can find more information on our website, www.putnamchorale.org, or by telephone at 845-279-7265.
