Join us for our opening concert where we’ll share the elegant works by French composer and organist, Fernande Decruck, who could improvise symphonies on the organ and 19th century British composer, Samuel Coleridge Taylor who was a pioneer of incorporating African folk music into the classical tradition as Brahms had done with Hungarian folk music. The centerpiece of the concert will be soprano Heather Dudenbostel, singing popular works by 1950s composer, Vernon Duke and Franz Schubert’s glorious work for soprano, clarinet and piano, “The Shepherd on the Rock”.
