Music Appreciation Group

by Angela - 16:59 on 05 January 2016

 

The music group met on the 4th Jan. to expore the theme"America"-a most interesting collection resulted-including new music and composers( to some of us)and items some had not heard previously.

Amongst the selection were-

Ferde Grofe-a Painted Landscape-

The Ink spots -two songs-

Aaron Copeland"s setting of Long Long Ago-

Samuel Barbours-Adagio for Strings-

Shenandoah-which has an interesting history-

Leroy Anderson"s Piano Concerto-Sinatra"s Nancy with the Laughing Face-

John Denver,Paul Robeson.

Gershwins Piano Concerto-

Korngold,John Williams,Oscar Perterson,Woodie Guthrie,and Charles Ives.

Listening to wonderful music-in a very social way-on a cold rainy windy morning-with home delicious home bakes ,seemed to be a very good idea!

The next session is on the 1st of Feb. at Susans-St,Catherines Place and she has selected-" River or Ocean" as her topic.

At 10-30 a.m.

All welcome.
