Music at the Meetinghouse is pleased to offer this special Upper Valley appearance of the acclaimed choral ensemble Counterpoint.
Based in Vermont and directed by Nathaniel Lew, Counterpoint performs throughout New England and has recorded numerous CDs since its founding in 2000 by the legendary Robert De Cormier. Flowers of the Field is a varied and inspiring program of choral works, accompanied by violist Elizabeth Reid and pianist Paul Orgel. The concert includes “Nursery Rhymes,” a rarely performed set of eighteen witty, miniature settings of Czech nursery rhymes by Leoš Jánaček; “Flos Campi,” one of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ finest creations, alternately rhapsodic and vigorous; and the premiere of “Alchemy,” a setting of a Sara Teasdale poem by Vermont composer Matthew LaRocca. The program also includes shorter works by Michael Ippolito, Tawnie Olson, Richard Stoehr, and Ernest Bloch. (For more, please visit www.counterpointchorus.org.)
