Concert4aCause

 

continued

The same performers returned in somewhat different configurations in the second half with Hawes and Goodson together enjoying the delights of Pascal's Sonate en 6 minutes 30, Cleveland alone playing three movements of Bach's G major Cello Suite with an ideal balance of control and freedom, then Cleveland joined by Clark, Fontana, and Soresi Winter for The Swan as described in poetry by Ogden Nash, music by Saint-Saens, and movement by Rudolf Steiner. The grand climax came when the mighty baritone Chris Grapentine joined Goodson for a trio of all-American songs: Ives' "Charlie Rutlage" and Copland's "At the River" and "Ching-a-Ring." The first and last were funny and exhilarating respectively, but the central song, delivered with massive dignity and passionate intensity by Grapentine, seemed to lift Northside Church six inches above its foundation.

Heaven only knows what Concert4aCause will turn in this time--a January 31 show for the Family Learning Institute--though Goodson has hinted at Schubert definitely, Beethoven probably, and Strauss, maybe.    (end of article)
