St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church‘s artist in residence Scott Ellaway and the Arts at St. Matthew’s are pleased to announce a very innovative and exciting three-concert digital series. The concerts will be broadcast over Zoom with the first on Wednesday, Oct. 21 at 8 p.m. In these 50-minute concerts, Ellaway will introduce you to composers that may be new to you as well as some you know well. In addition, the concert audience will be invited to ask the musicians questions via Zoom chat.
The Oct. 21 concert will feature the American composer Nico Muhly through a performance of “Set Me as a Seal” followed by a performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 by musicians from Orchestra Europa, of which Scott is artistic director.
On Feb. 24, 2021, Ellaway will introduce us to the music of Leonard Bernstein through his beloved Chichester Psalms. We will also hear “Notturno” composed by Michael Tilson Thomas. Musicians for this program will be drawn from the Vienna Philharmonic as well as Orchestra Europa.
The final concert on May 12, 2021, will feature the British composer Patrick Gowers with his “Viri Galilaei” and a performance of “Four Organs” by Steven Reich. Musicians from the London Symphony will join Orchestra Europa for our final program.
These concerts promise an evening of enlightenment and enjoyment for the audience and a chance to support future events by the Arts at St. Matthew’s.
