Madison Area Concert Handbells Spring Concert: MACH on the Move

May 10, 0014 7:30pm

Christ Presbyterian Church 944 E Gorham Street Madison, WI 53703
Madison Area Concert Handbells and new music director Brad Schultz are excited to present MACH on the MOVE.

The program begins with a nod to classic composers' takes on movement. Marches by Percy Granger and John Phillip Sousa, a hunting song by Felix Mendelssohn, a Renaissance Dance by Praetorius, and Kevin McChesney's fiery setting of Lord of the Dance augment the lush quietude and impressionist colors of a Pavane (slow dance) by Maurice Ravel and a Berceuse (rocking cradle song) by Gabriel Faure.

We continue our salute to movement by looking at two ways we move, by water and by air. Wade in the Water and a freshly minted setting of The Water Is Wide by Wisconsin composer Sandra Eithun will be featured. Escape Velocity is an exciting new piece by Jason Krug. Written as a tribute to the NASA Space Program, you will hear the quiet before a morning launch, followed by the Space Shuttle's majestic lift-off, orbit, and invigorating re-entry to Earth. Karen Lakey Buckwalter's setting of In Bright Mansions Above incorporates Magee's poem "High Flight" (made famous by Ronald Reagan's speech to the nation following the Challenger disaster) and features our own Nancy Evans on piano. We finish the program in the tropics, with Cuban composer Ernesto Leucona's saucy The Breeze and I.

It's a program sure to have you up and moving! We hope to see you in May for MACH on the MOVE.
