Other Early Music Concerts and Events in Southeast Michigan
Sunday, May 19, 2013, 4:00 PM
This exciting concert will follow choral music from the first recorded example of three-part polyphony (in the 12th-century St. James Mass) through a rarely-heard Renaissance work by Francisco de Montanos (1528-1595) and a variety of Baroque and Classical works, to modern works in the early music tradition such as a motet by Grail Singers director Carmen Cavallaro based on the chant Alma Redemptoris Mater. Cornerstone of the program will be Pergolesi’s moving Stabat Mater for women’s voices (1736).
The 16-voice women’s choir has performed in the Detroit Institute of Arts “Brunch with Bach” Series, at the Toledo Art Museum, at the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and at other venues in Michigan and Ohio. The Ann Arbor Grail Singers have been lauded for the beauty of their sound, and “their musicality, precision, balance, and intonation” (Current Magazine).Open seating tickets, available at the door from 3:30, are $15 general admission, $12 seniors, $5 students (cash or check only, please). Concertgoers have permission to park in the Community High School parking lot, just a block away. For more information call 734-662-0631.
