Music on the Green Presents:
The immortal music of Ludwig van Beethoven returns to UCCT as Season Six begins soon. Minister of Music Allan Conway will present four concerts this year: Thursday mornings July 8, 15, 22 & 29; at 11:00 AM. Please note the change of time from previous years. Concerts will be held in person, in the air-conditioned comfort of the church sanctuary, and are free and open to the public. As with our worship services, fully vaccinated people are not required to wear masks, but if you are not fully vaccinated, please wear a mask. Prior registration is not required but attendees will be asked to "sign in."
This season will offer the first four Symphonies of Beethoven. Originally written for orchestra, the symphonies were transcribed for solo piano by Franz Liszt. The clarity of the piano articulation often reveals inner details that are obscured by the sonority of the full orchestra. Rounding out each program will be shorter pieces written around the same time as the symphony, and insightful commentary will help bring to light the context and content of each of these powerful works.
