Baroque on Beaver

For the 3rd consecutive year, St. James Episcopal Mission will sponsor “Baroque on Beaver,” an occasion of classical music, on Sunday, July 25, 2004 at Holy Cross Parish Hall.

This year the small chamber orchestra and choral ensemble, comprised of Beaver Island residents and guests, will present two performances. The evening will feature music by Bach, Purcell, Holst, Handel ,and Ralph Vaughn Williams with 15 instrumentalists and 25 choir members, including instrumental and choral soloists. The afternoon program will include students from the Island School and children of seasonal residents and guests.
Jason Economides, concertmaster of both the Midland and Alma Symphonies, and his wife, Patty Baser, Orchestra Director of the Chippewa Hills School District in Remus, will return as co-directors. Charles Krutz will return as an instrumental soloist. Brenda LeFevre will return as a vocal soloist, and Kathy Speck will direct both the children's and the adult choruses.

Excitement about this year's “Baroque on Beaver” is especially high because the project was selected to receive partial funding through a grant award by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs and the Cheboygan Area Arts Council!
