Music Appreciation Group

by Angela - 11:23 on 05 May 2017

 

Meets on the first Monday of the month-at 10-30 a.m.

For our May meeting - a member had chosen " Women  "s  Voices" ,as our theme-and we ,as usual,enjoyed listening to a varied mix-

Also ,as we always do-we were introduced to new ( to some of us)artists and musical knowledge.

among the items we listened to were---

Jean Redpath-singing Burns songs

Leontyne Price,Eva Cassidy,Kathleen Ferrier,Gina Cigna,Mahalia Jackson,and Montserrat Cabelle.

One of our members  sang for us  a song she had translated  from the Spanish by Frey Luis de Leon-she has a lovely voice and it was the highlight of the meeting-

We also listened to Emma Kirkby ,music by Hildagaard  of BingenJessie Norman,and Joan Baez.

Each of the members talk about their choice-a bit of background ,why they chose it-and some interesting facts .

Our next meeting is in June -the 5th -when our choice is still "Women"-but widening the theme to composers as well as instrumentalists and voices.

We are hoping some new members of the U3A will come and "try us out".

Angela
