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.
