The Bach Society of Dayton, under the direction of John Neely, will open its 10th anniversary season with a concert of audience favorites on Sunday, October 21, at 4:00 p.m. The Bach Society chorus will be joined by the Oakwood Brass in a concert that spans works from the 16th century phenomenon Giovanni Gabrieli to 21st century choral “rock star” Eric Whitacre. R. Alan Kimbrough is accompanist and organist. The concert will be held at Kettering Adventist Church, 3939 Stonebridge Road, Kettering, Ohio, which offers free parking and is handicap accessible.
“Choral music composers through the centuries have always innovated to appeal to the audiences of the day. What we consider to be classical music today was once contemporary. So our first concert of the 10th anniversary season is a celebration of both old and new choral works that our audience members and singers have recommended as their all-time favorites,” said John Neely, music director, Bach Society of Dayton. The concert program includes: Plaudite, In Ecclesiis, and music for brass by Giovanni Gabrieli Sicut Cervus by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina Lift Thine Eyes and He Watching Over Israel from Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn The Seal Lullaby and selections from Animal Crackers by Eric Whitacre A Psalm of David by Norman Dello Joio Imperial March for brass and organ by Edward Elgar, arranged by Steven Winteregg for the Bach Society.
