Baroque on Beaver
In July of 2002 a totally home grown effort delivered
a most unexpected event on Beaver Island: Bach on Beaver. The
performance brought forth a wealth of talent, interest, enthusiasm
and an overflow crowd.
Largely due to this response, and to capitalize on the interest
shown for classical music, another exciting event is being planned
for Sunday, July 27th: a chamber orchestra and choral performance
of Baroque on Beaver. Frequent summer visitor Charles Krutz, who
portrayed Bach last year, will again direct the musicians.
Tentative plans include a Handel organ concerto, some music for
trumpet and strings by Torelli, a Brandenberg Concerto by Bach,
and music by Telemann. The planned expanded choir will join in
a performance of the cantata The Lord Remembers Us by Johann Frauenholf
and Alleluia, O Praise the Lord from Bach's Cantata No. 206.
St. James Episcopal Mission will once again sponsor the concert,
but to accommodate a larger audience the performance will be in
Holy Cross Hall.
