MUSIC, GETTYSBURG! ANNOUNCES new season of exciting music with favorites and new voices
Music, Gettysburg! will present a new season of inspired and inspiring performances in its 2013-2014 season, beginning with the Gettysburg Chamber Orchestra September 8th.
The new season will bring first time performances, including organist Bruce Neswick, soprano Stacey Mastrian, Ensemble Companio, and new guest performers with the Chamber Orchestra. The roster of performers in the 34th season also includes an all-star list of many of Gettysburg’s most-loved performers: Wayne Hill, Felix Hell, the Schola Cantorum, the Sunderman’s Metta Ensemble, Cormorants Fancy and others.
Music, Gettysburg! concerts free and open to the public, thanks to the support of community and corporate generosity and especially by the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, which provides the acoustically magnificent Seminary Chapel, 147 Seminary Ridge.
Sunderman Conservatory faculty member Alexander Kahn said “What brings me the most joy about Music, Gettysburg! is that it adds such a rich and diverse array of performers and performances to our town. I’ve enjoyed every note I’ve heard, from the transcendent sounds of Tuvan throat singing to the heavenly voices of the Schola Cantorum to the triumphant peals of brass and percussion from the Gettysburg Chamber Orchestra.”
He added, “the fact that I get to experience this great music in the beautiful and acoustically magnificent Seminary Chapel is of course an added plus!”
