Counterpoint Vocal Ensemble is a group member of MBAC, and is conducted by Lesley Brown. Highlights of the concert at the Chapel, Grace Lutheran College (Rothwell) will be Benjamin Brittens setting of W H Audens intriguing poem Hymn to St Cecilia, the martyred Patron Saint of Musicians. St Cecilias day is traditionally celebrated on 22nd November, between the dates of the Rothwell concert and a repeat performance at the Tarragindi Uniting Church on the following Saturday evening (phone 3284 3688 for details). In counterpoint to th this 20 Century piece, the program also includes the C16 Cantantibus Organis Caecilia Virgo of Orlando di Lasso, again in honour of St Cecilia, and again sung a cappella (without instrumental accompaniment). The concert celebrates music and its component elements of melody, harmony and rhythm, and in keeping with this theme Counterpoint will perform various shorter pieces including Bob Chilcotts A Little Jazz Mass (featuring the Peninsulas own esteemed jazz musicians David Judd on keyboard and Hayley Sawtell on drums), as well as old favourites like A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square. A truly exciting and varied programme of beautiful music, to be followed by refreshments in the Chapel foyer. Hope you can come along!
