A musical celebration for the community
Submitted By Stephen Trever
Music lovers are invited to take a break from busy holiday preparations and come to St. AnneÕs Episcopal Church to enjoy an uplifting concert and lecture on how composers develop musical ideas.
The fund-raising program is set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 16 and will feature the churchÕs musical director Giancarlo Aquilanti on piano and his daughter, Alessandra Aquilanti, on viola. Their program will showcase works which blend the folk songs of GiancarloÕs Italian upbringing with the sounds of his adopted American homeland.
After the program, Giancarlo Aquilanti, a senior lecturer of music at Stanford University, will give a short talk about how composers come up with, write, and present their musical ideas. A reception will follow AquilantiÕs talk.
Suggested donation is $15; all proceeds will go to support Adobe Family Services.
