Spring Concert Review

It was a beautiful, calming, relaxing concert. Don't know when I have ever heard one so lovely before. I was lucky to get out, (a spring snow storm dumped a foot of snow and made travel treacherous) but am so sorry the weather was sooooo inhibiting. Good luck for your future concerts.

 Our final concert of the season is Dido and Aeneas.

Baroque composer Henry Purcell's best-known theatrical work is a recounting of one of the most popular tales taken from Virgil's Aeneid. Centuries before Romeo and Juliet, the Trojan hero, Aeneas, and the object of his affection, Dido, the Queen of Carthage, were the most famous star-crossed lovers in the world.  After vowing never to marry again after her husband is killed in war, Dido finds herself unable to keep that promise because the gods themselves have been orchestrating the outcome behind the scenes. Though it was first written over two thousand years ago, the story of their love has been influencing classic love stories ever since.
