The American Boychoir at St. George’s

The world famous American Boychoir performed a spectacular concert at St. George’s on Saturday evening.  32 Middle School aged boys took the audience on a musical world tour, singing music from Austria to the South American rain forest, all with wonderful energy and perfect intonation.  Over 200 people attended, including some parents who drove down from NY to see their son perform.  The choir first performed at St. George’s in 2006, and were happy to return.  We hope to host them again in the future.  Selected video will be available soon.

Chamber Music for Winds, Deconstructed

Members of the St. George Chamber Orchestra gave a concert for winds a few weeks ago which also featured St. George’s new Parsons Pipe Organ.  Video of Suite in Classical Style for Flute and organ is on the performance page.  Kudos to all the players, who had to reconstruct the program at the last minute when one of us was suddenly hospitalized.  As always, the show must go on….We substituted a piece at the last minute and performed two pieces minus one player, all of which was well received by our audience.  Musical courage under fire….
