Sunday, October 22, 2006 at 3:00 PM – Vox Lucens
An A Cappella Chamber Choir in an Early Music concert
The Park Avenue Congregational Church Concert Series opens their 16th season with a return engagement by Vox Lucens, bringing their ethereal sounds to the Sanctuary. In “Light and Shadow”, Vox Lucens explores the light and shadow of 16th-century England. This was a time of extremes: artistic heights (think Milton and Shakespeare) undercut by political and religious intrigue – when religion was cause for murder with Protestants and Catholics battling for the throne. The concert will be a mix of serious pieces such as the 12-part Magnificat William Byrd, secretly-Catholic, wrote for a Protestant court, and silly amusements such as a madrigal about shepherds and nymphs by Thomas Weelkes.
Vox Lucens will perform in the Sanctuary of the Park Avenue Congregational Church, 50 Paul Revere Road, Arlington, MA. A Post-Concert Artist’s Reception will be held in the Parish Hall.
Tickets are available in advance: Adults – $12, Seniors/Students – $8 ; at the door: Adults – $15, Seniors/Students -$10

Sunday, March 25, 2007 at 3:00 PM – Jacqueline Schwab, Pianist
The Park Avenue Congregational Church Concert Series welcomes back a celebrated local artist. In addition to the afore-mentioned work on “The Civil War”, Jacqueline Schwab has worked with Ken Burns on numerous other projects, including “Baseball” and “Mark Twain”. Ms. Schwab’s eclectic style defies categorization: her musical pieces weave tapestries with influences from classical (Bach, Debussy, Bartok) to parlor piano songs, traditional Celtic and English music, and more contemporary blues and tangos! In addition to the various soundtracks she has recorded, she has also collaborated with many other traditional and folk artists, including singer-songwriter Dillon Bustin, singer Jeanne Morrill, Scottish fiddler Laura Risk, cellist Abby Newton and glass armonica player Dean Shostak. More information about Jacqueline Schwab is available at her website: jacquelineschwab.com.
Ms. Schwab will perform in the Sanctuary of the Park Avenue Congregational Church, 50 Paul Revere Road, Arlington, MA. A Post-Concert Artist’s Reception will be held in the Parish Hall.
