The powerful and dramatic soprano Kathryn Findlen (KathrynFindlen.com) has recently joined the artistic community in Wilmington. Join in as she performs her first concert here, together with Wilmington favorite, pianist Barry David Salwen at CAM. The program will focus on and celebrate the themes of two of CAM's newest exhibitions, "Recovery in Flight: Sculptures of Grainger McKoy" and "Along the Eastern Sea Road: Hiroshige’s Fifty-three Stations of the Tōkaidō". The concert will open with the great, lush song cycle "Sheherazade" by Ravel, evoking the mysteries of the East, followed by the atmospheric "Pagodes" of Debussy for piano. North Carolina composer Ken Frazelle, whose music has been heard widely around the U.S. and internationally, will be featured with several works, including his song cycle "Vanishing Birds". The concert will conclude on a high note with two comic songs by Frazelle. Join us for this musical evocation and then savor the museum's exhibits!

GROUP SINGING: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 11/18/2018
1:30PM-4:00PM  
Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers (http://bit.ly/WilmNCSacredHarp) presents a traditional Sacred Harp Singing and invite you to join in the music and raise your voice in song! This dynamic form of a cappella social singing dates back to Colonial America, using a modern reprint of the 1844 songbook "The Sacred Harp". Sacred Harp and related shape-note styles are the oldest continuous singing traditions in the United States. Surviving as a living tradition in parts of the South, notably Georgia and Alabama, Sacred Harp music has been discovered by new generations of singers who have spread the heritage across North America and to Australia and Europe.

The music is loud, vigorous and intense. It is meant to be sung, not just observed. No previous experience is necessary. 1:30 pm: Instruction for beginners, 2:00 - 4 pm: Group Singing, all. Songbooks provided, beginners welcome! Learn more about Sacred Harp singing at fasola.org. Free and open to the public. Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall.
