Musical Happenings at St. Michael’s

All are invited to another recital by Ensemble Boulanger (that’s pianist Hannah Brewer and soprano Emma Cowell) in the Nativity Hall this Saturday, April 27, at 4:00 pm. The theme is German Romantic Lieder, with songs, piano solos, and piano duets by 19th-century composers Franz Schubert, Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn, Clara and Robert Schumann and others. Flutist Brian Fairbanks also makes an appearance! Light refreshments provided. $20 suggested donation at the door via cash, check, or Venmo.

On Sunday, not only do we get the treat of hearing our St. Michael’s Choristers and Joyful Players sing a song to close their Easter play at the sermon time; but we have a lovely anthem at 9:00 am and 11:00 am sung by the St. Michael’s Singers by beloved American composer Randall Thompson (1899-1984). His Alleluia is a surprisingly quiet and introspective piece and has become his most popular work.

Make sure you have our next Choral Evensong on your calendar! Please join the St. Michael’s Singers and Choristers on Thursday, May 9, at 7:00 pm for our Ascension Evensong, with glorious music by Gerald Finzi and C.V. Stanford (in this centenary year of his death).
