Rosa Lamoreaux and Lori Barnet present MERRY MONTH OF MAY with OpenPageEnsemble on May 4, 7:30 p.m., at St. Columba's Episcopal Church, 4201 Albemarle Street NW, corner of 42nd St. NW, Washington D.C. This cheery program will take you on a journey through British literary history with Four Fragments from the Canterbury Tales set by Lester Trimble for voice, flute, clarinet and harpsichord, Shakespeare texts set by Stravinsky for voice, flute, clarinet and viola, and As It Fell Upon A Day set by Copland for voice, clarinet and flute. The instrumental works include Six Shakespeare Sketches by Gordon Jacob, for string trio, a magical set of violin works by George Benjamin, and the delightful romp, Fa├žade- an Entertainment by William Walton in a setting of dramatically spoken texts of Edith Sitwell, for cello, trumpet, clarinet, flute, saxophone, percussion and narrators. We are joined by British actors Fiona and Garth Bardsley, for this program of music and poetry to entertain, amuse, and lift your spirits.
