'A Door to the Soul' at The Little White Church in Eaton Village, Sept. 26
A community of musicians share the pieces they love
September 23, 2010
Come to The Little White Church in Eaton on Sunday, Sept. 26, at 7 p.m., to celebrate this unifying medium with music that opens the door to the soul as talented local musicians present music they find particularly moving.
Brian Charles will play a concerto written especially for him on the oboe — perhaps the most heart-wrenching of instruments. Ellen Schwindt, who composed the piece, will accompany him on the piano.
Violinist Chris Nourse and Schwindt will share a Prokofiev piece about the insanity of war and a Beethoven adagio filled with yearning.
Candace Maher's singers will make the space echo with shared harmony.
Mary Edes, soprano, will grace us with her beautiful voice, singing songs she wrote from the heart. Howard West, guitar, will accompany her in folk songs they love.
Mike Sakash joins Sharon Novak for a saxophone and piano duet that may make you weep.
Sufi poetry and a composition inspired by Sarah Waldron's improvisational singing will weave the performances together.
Admission is $10 per person and $5 for students and seniors. For more information, e-mail Ellen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
