The Nashua Flute Choir performs in Amherst, NH, in November
Join us on November 24 at 4 PM at the Congregational Church of Amherst in Amherst, NH, for our second concert of the season!
The choir will be joined by Congregational Church of Amherst musicians Michael Havay, organ and piano, and Sara Phelps, soprano, in a program of music ranging from the Baroque to the present-day.
If you missed the recent Newport NH world premiere of Lisa Lemay's Bone, Wood, Silver, Granite, for flutes and percussion, you can catch its second-ever performance in Amherst. Written for the Nashua Flute Choir's 30th anniversary, Bone, Wood, Silver, Granite celebrates the evolution of the flute through history and celebrates its diversity and presence in many cultures.
The choir will take the place of a vocal ensemble as it joins the organ and piano in Cantique de Jean Racine, by Gabriel Faure, and How Lovely Is Thy Dwelling Place, by Johannes Brahms. Mozart is on the menu, as Sara Phelps sings Voi, che sapete from The Marriage of Figaro with the flutes as orchestra.
Conductor Eileen Yarrison steps to the other side of the music stand to play Gabriel Faure's Fantasie with long-time friend Michael Havay. Michael, Eileen, and Sara will also perform Une Flute Invisible by Saint-Saens.
