Candide - Chorus pro Musica Concert - Boston
Leonard Bernstein's Candide Program: Leonard Bernstein's Candide Details: Following the acclaimed 2016 performance of Gershwin’s Of Thee I Sing, Chorus pro Musica returns to Arlington, MA with Bernstein’s brilliant operetta based on a novella by Voltaire, with lyrics by Richard Wilbur, Stephen Sondheim, and others. Prompted by parallels between Voltaire’s satire of the Inquisition and McCarthy’s congressional “witch hunt,” the operetta has become a modern classic, with popular songs such as “The Best of All Possible Worlds,” “Glitter and Be Gay,” and “Make Our Garden Grow.”

Foggy Mountain Consort & Friends
Time to give back to the community and highlight some of the incredible home-grown talent in and around Arlington! For this show, Foggy Mountain Consort (Lauck Benson, Peter Lehman, Anne Goodwin, Art Schatz, Doug Freundlich) take over our stage. You may recognize some of your friends or neighbors, and you'll certainly recognize entertaining, eclectic music, brilliantly played. ======================================================== Local father-son duo Chris & Quinn Eastburn open! More at fiddlinquinn.com ======================================================== Foggy Mountain Consort are a group dedicated to performing music from a wide historical range. Starting with plucked string music and songs from as early as 1600. While this music is very old, it still rings contemporary when approached in the right manner. We mix old instruments with newer ones, old styles with a fresh approach, and mostly have a great time making music together. We try to play with all our heart and soul, have no fear, and enjoy the collaboration. We also pull from the vast repertoire of "collected" ballads from the British Isles. Collected by Francis James Child in the late nineteenth century, these and other tunes, sometime familiar, always haunting and heartfelt, offer a deep hunting ground for the Foggy Mountain Consort. With true origins unknown, ballads and old tunes might easily stretch back to the middle ages. Then of course there's bluegrass and traditional North American music. The Foggy Mountain Consort does get around to playing old style bluegrass, but in its own eclectic way. And there's much more from this unusual band. Early music, long forgotten songs, romping bluegrass, and new music inspired by old styles. Rich textures from the lute, banjo, violone (Renaissance double bass), violin, guitar, and voices. We like to say, Old is new, new is old. ================== OPENING PERFORMERS Ancient Voices is a different kind of Native American music. A resident of Elizabethtown, PA, DAVID ROSE is one of the top Native flute players in the country. The Spirit Wind Records recording artist, of Mexican/Indian and Native American heritage (Choctaw/Cherokee), has been a lifelong musician. David's flute music has been featured Mars Lasar's Tahoe Spirit, MSNBC, and at multiple gatherings around the USA. Whisperings pianist DAN KENNEDY has performed in 21 states across the country. Classically trained at Oberlin and New England Conservatory, Dans music has been heard on 250 radio stations, plus Pandora, Spotify, Music Choice, and SiriusXM.

Hailing from Boston, the romantic clawhammer banjo playing by Monique Byrne and expressive guitar picking by Andy Rogovin are enlivened by their personal chemistry and emotionally eloquent vocals. Add to that, their tightly blended vocal harmonies and unique instrumental style that can only be described as a banjo-guitar romance. Crowes Pasture celebrated the release of their third full-length album titled "Slow It Down" this past June at the legendary Club Passim. Since its official release, the album debuted at #5 on the International Folk DJ Chart, and the title track was the #1 song for the month of June.
