Music will include several madrigals by Renaissance composer and organist Thomas Morley; Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes, Op. 52, for voices and four-hand piano; and Liebeslieder Polkas by the colorful P.D.Q. Bach (alias Prof. Peter Schickele) for singers and five-hand piano. Other highlights include a contemporary setting of Shakespeare texts by the late jazz great George Shearing entitled “Music to Hear.”
National Philharmonic Singers is a chamber choir and one of several performing ensembles of the National Philharmonic. As such, it promotes works suited for smaller ensembles, whether with accompaniment or a cappella. Its repertoire ranges from 15th to 21st Centuries, and it often premiers new compositions by local composers. The group performs throughout the area but most often at Christ Episcopal Church.
