Join us on Sunday, March 11 at 2 PM for This Green and Pleasant Land, featuring musical conceptions of paradise.
We’ll be celebrating the arrival of spring by roaming through the green grass of local and celestial paradises. Sacred composers have long exalted the promise of joys in the afterlife, but no music-lover can deny the appeal of more sensual, earthly pleasures. Featuring works by William Billings (1746-1800), Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), Samuel Barber (1910-1981), and Naomi Shemer (1930-2004), we traverse this spectrum of delight and exaltation, staking our support for our own fair city with a food drive for Philabundance.
The concert will be held at the First Unitarian Church at 2125 Chestnut Street. Free admission, but please bring canned goods for Philabundance.
