2018-2019 Arts at All Saints Season
Indianapolis – Old North Side Neighborhood: The Episcopal Church of All Saints has served as a spiritual anchor since the turn of the 19th Century within the Old Northside Neighborhood at the corner of 16th Street and Central Avenue, and it is again announcing a creative series of concerts in celebration of both sacred and secular music from across multiple centuries. All concerts are free to the public and will take place on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m.
The first concert, Trumpets and Pipes, is scheduled for November 4, 2018, and will feature festive and majestic music for a professional brass and percussion ensemble led by Frank Boles, Organist and Choirmaster, at the All Saints organ, “The King of Instruments.” The music of Richard Strauss, Sigfrid Karg-Elert, Charles Marie Widor, Eugene Gigouot, as well as congregational hymns will be featured in this musical collection.
Starting off the new year, on January 3, 2019, The Abel Family and Friends - A Chamber Concert, will be provided by the well-known local professional chamber string orchestra, made up of family and friends of Alfred Abel, all of whom will perform in the elegant acoustics of All Saints. The concert will feature music of Arnold Schoenberg, Arcangelo Corelli, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Antonio Vivaldi.
As part of their 25th Anniversary Season, and in celebration of Women’s History Month, the Indianapolis Women’s Chorus will make their debut appearance at All Saints on March 3, 2019. With the dynamic leadership of Meagan Johnson, Artistic Director, this unique vocal ensemble made up of blended feminine voices will present the choral works of women representing the 12th through 21st centuries, including Hildegard of Bingen, Chiara Margarita Cozzolani, Florence Price and Elaine Hagenberg.
To conclude the 2018-2019 series, with Frank Boles conducting, the All Saints Choir sings the twentieth-century masterpiece, Requiem by John Rutter. Scheduled for March 24th and in observance of the liturgical season of Lent, this lyrical masterpiece will be presented by the choir with organ and instrumental accompaniment. This work is a musical setting inclusive of parts of the Latin Requiem with added psalms and biblical verses in English, completed in 1985.
