About the Concert
Concert 1 of this three-part concert series features the ensemble in works both serious and silly: operetta excerpts by Johann Strauss II; the epilogue from Patrice Michaels' innovative new song cycle inspired by Ruth Bader Ginsburg; and Benjamin Britten's iconic Canticle II: Abraham and Isaac.
"Who loves not woman, wine and song, remains a fool his whole life long" is actually an English translation of a Martin Luther quote. Who knew that? And what could be more fun to sing about? If you've never been to a Fourth Coast parlor concert, the wine is poured, the women (and men) sing, and the songs flow! You get the chance to relax, enjoy the architecture of an inviting home, and savor a moment of harmony.
