The evocative & mystical music of Herbert Howells and Ralph Vaughan Williams opens GraceMusic’s 48th season on Sat Oct 21 at 7p at Grace Church.
The concert features the Grace Church Choir singing some of the most beautiful choral works by both composers. Nyacker Korliss Uecker and Tammy Hensrud will perform solo vocal pieces, accompanied by James Rensink, Director of Music at the Reformed Church in Nyack. Organists Brandon Beachamp & Cleveland Kersh will perform some of Howells’ edgy and exciting organ pieces. Saxophonist Jacob Nevill will join Beachamp at the piano for some new arrangements, and you (the audience) will join us in singing a beloved hymn written by each composer.
