Asbury Church to present “Palestrina to Poulenc,” a chamber music concert

MADISON – Asbury Church will present “Palestrina to Poulenc,” a chamber music concert featuring pieces from the Renaissance to the early 20th Century.

The chamber music concert will be performed on Sept. 12 at 3 p.m. on the Madison campus in the sanctuary of Building 2. The event is free to the public.

Music aficionados will be able to experience the efforts of members of the Madison Early Music Project. Project members are delighted to introduce the community to a selection of Renaissance consorts and more from Bach through Poulenc, a French composer and pianist who created solo piano works, chamber music, choral pieces, operas, ballets and orchestral concert music.

The performance will feature musicians from several groups. The “Strings of Pearl” ensemble recently played for the Space and Missile Defense Symposium. Rocket City Viols of Huntsville is the newest chapter of the Viola da Gamba Society of America and has participated in the Valley Conservatory Early Music Festival for four years now and other venues in civic gatherings.

Other guests will be members of the Valley Conservatory Early Music Festival, started in 2013 as an introduction to the community to early music and period instruments. The event offers lectures, master classes and concerts.

In addition, music professors from University of North Alabama will join the concert.

Concert organizers are presented by Erin Huelskamp Bohn, Orchestra Director for Traditional Worship at Asbury, Artistic Director at Opera Huntsville and Executive Director Emeritus at Juventas New Music Ensemble, and Kenneth Watson, Director of Traditional Worship at Asbury, who studied piano performance at Birmingham – Southern College and at the Juilliard School in New York City.

Organizers and the musicians encourage residents to attend and experience a free afternoon of music at Asbury.
