SPVF completes two amazing concerts!
On Novemeber 23 and 24, SPVF performed its “Finely Woven” concerts to enthusiastic audiences. The program included music from Greg Jasperse, Abbie Betinis, David Evan Thomas, René Clausen, John Rutter, J. David Moore, Craig Hella Johnson, Elizabeth Alexander, Ruth Watson Henderson, Ysaye Barnwell, and Andrew Lloyd Webber. Michael Dennis Browne read texts from the music as well as poems by himself, E. E. Cummings, Czesław Miłosz, Wendell Berry, and Rumi. We also had the pleasure of witnessing the artistry of Nadine Sanders, through her display of beautiful weavings.
Now, SPVF takes a break for the holidays before beginning work on its spring concert program, Chant Sacré, featuring sacred music by Poulenc, Duruflé, Milhaud, Messaien, and Fauré. These performances are scheduled for April 4 and 5, so mark your calendars!
