Thank to all who joined us for our chamber music concert in Highlands Ranch last Sunday afternoon, with music reflecting different aspects of joy by Handel, Bach, and Telemann. I received a number of comments from audience members who enjoyed the suite of French Noels that concluded the program. I love the music in this tradition – the combination of simple folk tunes and the more elaborate variations is enticing. I plan to continue arranging Noels as an ongoing project for the orchestra, trying different instrumental combinations and exploring improvisational aspects as well!
I am interested in learning what our audiences would like to hear this time of year from the BCOC. Familiar or new, vocal or instrumental? Are you hoping to hear Baroque music composed specifically for Christmas (there’s a lot of it!) , or simply timeless Baroque music that evokes joy and peace? I’d like to hear your thoughts and suggestions; please respond to this post or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
