Sunday Feb 7, also known as Superbowl Sunday. An important national holiday for some, something to do in the evening for others, and completely unremarkable for still others. Whichever category you fall into, we have a young ton of early music happening that day, and all before kick-off! So get out early in the day for some live music!
At 10:45am Knox Presbyterian’s special music service begins. The famed choir joins forces with an instrumental ensemble to perform music by Heinrich Schütz, one of the greatest German composers of the 17th century. The music will be embedded in the traditional 11:00 worship service, and all are welcome. Hyde Park, free. http://catacoustic.com/event/monteverdi-at-knox/?instance_id=339
At 3:00 Great Music in a Great Space, the presenting series at St. Peter in Chains, brings The Rose Ensemble to town. Based in Minnesota, this vocal ensemble tours widely to high praise. Their program Il Poverello: Exploring the Life and Deeds of St. Francis of Assisi features centuries of hymns, dances, and motets, as well as early Italian-language spiritual songs and light-hearted readings written about and by Francis himself. Downtown, tickets $40. http://catacoustic.com/event/the-rose-ensemble/?instance_id=369
