2023-24 SEASON

"A Musical Journey"

November 12, 2023 at 4pm

St. Bede’s Episcopal Church

2650 Sand Hill Rd, Menlo Park

Join us as we embark on a journey - letting music transport us. With compositions from Leonard Bernstein, Gerald Finzi, Edward Elgar and Pentatonix, we’ll visit Speyer in Germany to hear the bells. We’ll visit Finland with Finlandia by Jean Sibelius. We’ll travel by train and invite you to “Come Fly with Me”. We’ll sit by a clear and gentle stream in England and travel in the Sloop John B. in the Bahamas.

We ask for $20. All proceeds will go to LifeMoves, a local charity addressing the problem of homelessness.

"Time to Turn the Page"

Sunday April 21, 2024 at 4pm

St. Bede’s Episcopal Church

2650 Sand Hill Rd.  Menlo Park

"Time to Turn the Page" explores how the passage of time rules our lives and leads us to ask what comes next.  With composers and styles as varied as Haydn, Joni Mitchell and Benjamin Britten, we look at various inflection points in life.  We’ll tap into nostalgia for our youth in a song by Brahms and we will mourn a lost son in Tomkin’s “When David Heard,” composed four centuries ago. We’ll move on from a relationship that might have been in Lennon & McCartney’s “I’ll Follow the Sun” and marvel at a blissful marriage in Ben Fold’s ballad “The Luckiest.”  So come and join us to allow us to share this rich and diverse palette of music with you.

We ask for $20. All proceeds will go to charity.
