Musica Vocale: Shared Music Transcends Time
Musica Vocale’s early-spring concert, Shared Music Transcends Time, features music that acknowledges Musica Vocale’s decade-long history of “Uniting friends—singers, instrumentalists, and audiences—in exceptional experiences of choral music.”
Central to this program’s focus are works by Brahms and Bach and their relationship to modern compositions. A work by the English poet Francis Warner (a pupil of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein and Ralph Vaughan Williams) will be featured alongside new works by composers with local connections, including Stewart Duncan, Anthony Maglione, Ian David Coleman and Geoffrey Wilcken. This program makes use of a small instrumental ensemble. For tickets, visit musicavocale.org/tickets.

For Bright Sunday, we will have a jazz liturgy at the 10:15 a.m. service. The guest jazz musicians are alumni of the UMKC Conservatory and are led by Dr. Beth Elswick.
