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.

National Award-winning Minstrel Storyteller Mary Jo Maichack leads the fun--Learn and sing a song in Japanese and the “Itsy Bitsy Spider” in Spanish. “Plant” cabbages the French way—with your nose, my leetle cabbage, mon petit chou, in a funny movement game/song that always makes you crack up!
