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!
