Shakespeare in Song
January 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm$20 – $25
Under the direction of Martin Sedek, The Choral Art Society of NJ will present “Shakespeare in Song” on Sunday, January 27, 3PM, at the United Methodist Church of New Providence.
Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, one of the most well-known and beloved settings of a Shakespeare text, is the centerpiece of this concert, in addition to the Shakespeare songs of New York composer, Matthew Harris, a celebrated living composer; and the Shaw collection of six Shakespeare songs. Rounding out the program are settings of the Bard’s songs by contemporary composers, separated into the three most common themes of Shakespeare’s songs: Music, Life and Death, and Love. The choral experience, enhanced by scenes presented by actors, will be a medley of Shakespearean comedy and drama.
