Ann Arbor Cantata Singers 2012

 

continued

What impressed most in the whole concert was the final number: Vaughan Williams' ecstatic "Serenade to Music" featured a performance to match the music. These melodies are more lush and the harmonies more sensuous than even those in the Brahms, and under conductor Warren Puffer Jones's expert direction, the Cantata Singers delivered a deeply moving performance, particularly the clarion solo work from soprano Terri Wilcox, who, the program notes, enjoys riding roller coasters with her husband.

The Cantata Singers' next concert will be a season-closing lollapalooza, Haydn's The Creation, which they'll perform three times in May: at the First United Methodist Church in Brighton on the 18th, at Christ Church Cranbrook on the 19th, and back in Ann Arbor on the 20th at the First Congregational Church.

If the February concert was the Singers' idea of love, I'd like to hear their notion of creation.    (end of article)
