Stars & Stripes – A evening of American music
Come and hear a concert of American Music, including items such as close harmony arrangements of Moon Riverand Pink Panther at St John in Bedwardine Parish Church, St John’s Worcester.
From the original European settlers and their use of music for entertainment and worship, the indigenous Indian music, the slave songs with their ancestry in African rhythms and tunes, American music has many forebears. From these beginnings, the music of present day America is rich in different genres, with spirituals, jazz, ragtime, blues and more conventional classical themes. This concert will give just a small example of some of this music, from Aaron Copeland’s Four Motetsand Four American songsto close harmony arrangements of favourites such as Moon River and Pink Panther.
Saturday, 30thJune 2018, at 7.30pm, here at St John’s Church, Bedwardine.
