Music has long been a constant companion to many aspects of the human condition. It can invite people to dance or offer comfort in times of distress; it can be used in reverence of God, or offer commentary on life’s great joys and tribulations. Just as “there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens”, there is music to accompany it all.
The music for this concert is a collection of enchanting and beautiful compositions from all over Europe and England. The incomparable Beethoven wakes us to the evils of politics, dishonesty, and murder in his dramatic overture to Coriolan. A fitting overture for an election year...
There could not be a more delightful way to spend a summer evening. Three different chamber groups of talented students will perform classical music in the Conrad Grebel Chapel. Selections include:
Trio No. 1 in D minor by Felix Mendelssohn
Trio No. 1 in B flat major by Franz Schubert
Trio K. 498 'Kegelstatt' by W. A. Mozart
