GROUP SINGING: Wilmington Sacred Harp Singers

Sunday, 11/24/2019
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.


Jazz@CAM: Paolo André Gualdi

Thursday, 12/5/2019
6:30PM-8:00PM  
Where jazz meets classical is Paolo André Gualdi (www.pagualdi.com) who says “I always like to joke about the fact that, as a musician, I always felt a little bit like ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’.” In the last three decades Gualdi has kept classical and jazz music as separate entities in his day-to-day activity as a performer. Recently he finally had an opportunity to blend those two elements into a very exciting project. Following the steps of the great Jacques Loussier, George Cables and others, Gualdi put together a program of works that represent the crossover between classical and jazz genres. From Bach to Debussy, he will present jazz “reinterpretation” of famous classical compositions, with the invaluable assistance of Natalie Boeyink on bass, Jon Hill on drums, and Danijela Žeželj-Gualdi on violin. A first and very unique program for the Jazz@CAM series, not to be missed!

Purchase seats on CAM’s website, by phone and at CAM’s Visitor Services desk.
CAM/CFJS Members: $17.00 for, Non-members: $25.00, Students with valid college ID $12.00 (tax and fees not included). Weyerhaeuser Reception Hall. The eight-concert series is presented by Cameron Art Museum and the Cape Fear Jazz Society.
