2017-2018 Arts at All Saints Season
With the blending of the sounds of both instrumental and choral music, the Episcopal Church of All Saints, located at 16th Street and Central Avenue in the Old North Side Neighborhood of Indianapolis, has announced its 2017-2018 Arts at All Saints concert season, to feature local, international and neighborhood musicians. The programs are free to the public.
On November 12, 2017, 4:00 p.m., the season commenced with a performance by the Indy Baroque Chamber Players quartet, who will be presenting a program entitled, “Telemann in Paris.” Featured will be Leela Breithaupt on Flute, Thomas Gerber on Harpsichord, Martha Perry on Violin, and Erica Rubis, playing the Viol. The two quartet compositions to be performed are by Georg Philipp Telemann, written while he was in Paris in 1738, and will include the Quartet II in A minor and the Quartet VI in E minor. The Indy Baroque Chamber Players are representatives of the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra founded in 1997, and currently under the artistic leadership of the internationally renowned and distinguished early music conductor and musician, Barthold Kuijken.
To continue the season, guest organist Jörg-Hannes Hahn of Stuttgart, Germany will be making his American debut on February 11, 2018, both as organist/choir master for the 10:00 a.m., All Saints Mass, and as soloist in a formal organ concert at 4:00 p.m., entitled “Glory to God Alone: The Chorale as the Heart in Protestant and Catholic Faith.” Professor Hahn studied church music, organ, piano and conducting with Werner Jacob, Ludger Lohmann and Marie-Claire Alain (Paris), among others. His professional experience has seen him perform the entire organ works of Max Reger, followed by the organ works of J.S. Bach. He is the artistic director of the Stuttgart Bach Choir and Orchestra, professor of the Higher School of Music, and director of the series “MUSIK AM 13”, one of the most profiled series of sacred music, unique to southern Germany. In addition, engagements as a soloist, visiting professor, juror of international competitions and conductor have taken him to countries throughout Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
The sounds of the All Saints' Goulding and Wood designed organ will continue to be heard on April 15, 2018, 4:00 p.m., with an organ concert by Dalong Ding, a graduate student of the Jacobs School of Music of Indiana University. Dalong is a Performance Diploma student, studying with Dr. Janette Fishell. He is from Shanghai, China and earned a Bachelor degree from Shanghai Conservatory, and Masters degrees from Manhattan School of Music in Piano Performance, and the Jacobs School of Music in Organ Performance. His major organ teachers have been Katherine Meloan and McNeil Robinson.
To conclude the 2017-2018 season, the choir of the Episcopal Church of All Saints, conducted by organist/choirmaster Frank Boles, will host “The Tinker Street Sacred Music Concert,” on May 6, 2018, 4:00 p.m., featuring musical guests from congregations who also serve the Old North Side Neighborhood, including Central Christian Church-Disciples of Christ, Mt. Helm Missionary Baptist, Redeemer Presbyterian, Restoration Baptist, and St. John African Methodist Episcopal Church. The choral program will include sacred works performed by musicians of each church, as well as works performed with the combined choruses together. The intention of the concert is to bring together representatives of diverse faith communities of the Neighborhood, using music as a means of sharing traditions.
