Annapolis Chorale- Season Finale! Peace and Joy!

April 7, 2018

Live Arts Maryland closes the 2017-2018 season with a program called “Peace and Joy!” featuring  J. Ernest Green conducting the Annapolis Chorale and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra. As we mark the 100th Anniversary of America’s involvement in World War I, music is a way for us to remember that in the end we strive for peace!  Gerald Finzi’s moving A Farewell to Arms and Beethoven’s monumental Choral Fantasy bookend this concert of music that is full of optimism and hope.

Annapolis Chorale - Mass in B-Minor (BWV 232) JS Bach

March 10, 2018

As part of its Bach+ Series at historic St. Anne’s Church, Live Arts Maryland presents J.S. Bach’s Mass in B-Minor.  The Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra will perform the work under the direction of J. Ernest Green.  Organist and Bach expert Larry Molinaro will also perform. One of the crowing achievements in all of Western Civilization, Bach’s Mass in b-minor is full of glorious music and musical puzzles that inspire and astonish both performers and listeners alike to this day! It really is as one performer described it – the Mount Everest of music. This is only the second time in history that this work has been performed by members of the Annapolis Chorale. Please join us for this very special concert event. Note:  Seating at St. Anne’s is limited so get your tickets early!

Few places are more magical than downtown Annapolis during the holidays. There’s no better place than downtown Annapolis to share a holiday tradition with family and friends. J. Ernest Green conducts the Chorale’s Chamber Chorus and the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra in a very special trio of performances of Handel’s “Messiah” at historic St. Anne’s Church in Church Circle. The nearly perfect acoustics and historic beauty of St. Anne’s make it the perfect location to experience this much-loved oratorio, which takes on extra intensity and meaning under Mr. Green’s direction. All performances include a unique addition in large-screen displays of music, images, translations and biblical quotes that bring the work’s message to modern audiences.  Note:  Seating at St. Anne’s is limited so get your tickets early!

Bach+@ St. Anne's: Sunday Organ Vespers

October 22, 2017

This new series launches on September 24 at 4 p.m. with the first of eight, hour-long Organ Vespers that are designed to show off St. Anne’s newly-refurbished Freiburger organ as well as the organ works of J.S. Bach, performed by organist Larry Molinaro.  Throughout his entire career, Bach was regarded as the “prince of all clavier players” (as a colleague once called him). This first Organ Vespers program features some of the virtuosic “foundational” works that Bach wrote before his years in Leipzig.  The program shows how Bach incorporated the styles of the previous generation of German masters along with Italian and French styles into his compositions.  Works to be performed include chorales from the Orgelbüchlein as well as the famous Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor (BWV 582).
