Shameless Plug: Boston's Spectrum Singers Nov. 22nd!


Tired of the same old holiday concert? Well, this year, come hear Spectrum Singers' Christmas Prelude Celebrating St. Cecilia's Day, this Saturday, November 22nd at 8pm at First Church Congregational in Cambridge. Better yet, come at 7pm to hear an engaging pre-concert lecture by acclaimed musicologist Steven Ledbetter. The concert will feature:

  • Benjamin Britten's Hymn to St. Cecilia
  • Norman Dello Joio's To Saint Cecilia (performed in memory of the composer)
  • Daniel Pinkham's A Song for St. Cecilia's Day
  • Herbert Howells' Hymn for St. Cecilia
  • as well as works by Ireland, Houkom, and Mathias.
Come celebrate music's patron saint and enjoy this unique holiday experience. Tickets: $15/$35/$45. I have discounted tickets available. If you are interested, leave your name and some form of contactable info (e-mail/link) in the comments.
