Happy December, friends! December is my favorite month, so I’m really psyched that it’s finally rolled around again. And now, at last, I can say: Come watch the Madrigal Singers, Chorale/Choral Union, and Flute Orchestra concerts!!! You definitely don’t want to miss this. Seriously. We’ve worked very hard. Please support us. We don’t even get paid. So I’ll see you all there, right? Right? Good.

If you were at the CMS concert, you know it was incredible. And if you weren’t then I have to say: it was incredible. I mean oh man. Like wow. Pretend I put a fluid segue in here. Because now I’m going to talk about student performances, of which many are imminent. I’ll just start listing, and you try to keep up.

First order of business: Rio Clemente! What a wonderful, funny, odd little fellow. We all had a great time at the benefit concert on Sunday. Now, everybody make sure you’re sitting down, because I have some truly wonderful news. This Saturday marks the kickoff of this year’s CMS (Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center) concert series!

Anyone who didn’t show up to the Discovery Orchestra concert really missed out, because I (and by all accounts, the entire audience) had a great time. It was the most unique concert I’ve ever experienced. And I have personally pulled some strings to allow you the chance to help both the Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter and your own ears, by attending Rio Clemente’s benefit concert this Sunday, November 10th, at 3 p.m.

Once upon a time in 2011:
The Morris Music Men performed. Gotcha! Their concert was actually in 2013! I mean, they probably did perform in 2011, since they’ve been around since the ‘50s. But the concert I’m blogging about wasn’t in 2011. It was last Sunday. This weekend promises an equally entertaining, if entirely different kind of musical experience. On November 3rd at 3 p.m., the Concert Hall will host the Discovery Orchestra, who will be performing Beethoven’s String Quartet Opus 18, No. 3 in D Major.

We sang at the President’s Mosaic Concert on Saturday, and it was beautiful. Were you there? You were?! Excellent! Things will be a little calmer this weekend, but there’s still good music to come and see! On Sunday at 3, the Morris Music Men, a local barbershop chorus, will grace the Hall. P.S. The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center is coming!!!! More in our subsequent installment!

Dashon Burton was predictably incredible and gave a moving performance. On Saturday the 19th at 7:30, Drew’s vocal performance ensembles, from student-run a cappella groups to the Drew Chorale, will be performing together in the second annual President’s Mosaic Concert, and the Drew Center for Holocaust/Genocide Study will take the concert baton on Sunday at 2 p.m. with their benefit cabaret “As Time Goes By: Music from 1933-1945.”

This weekend promises further delights, with baritone Dashon Burton and bassist Logan Coale making their da Camera Concert Series appearance in our hall. Gazing even farther into the murky future, the third weekend of October will bring the first Concert Hall performances by Drew students.

As per my prediction, Trefoil treated audiences to a delightful performance last Saturday. As some of you may be aware, this weekend is Family and Alumni Weekend here at Drew, and as part of that delightful event, the Uptown Flutes, an eight-member flute ensemble, will present a concert which will include the premiere of “Flute Commute,” a piece by Drew professor and music department chair (and all-around good guy) Trevor Weston.

As I promised, Reza Aslan himself was in our Concert Hall just last night. Let it never be said that I have led you astray. This very Saturday at 8 p.m., the Concert Hall will kick off its da Camera Concert Series with a performance by Trefoil, a trio of medieval singer-instrumentalists.
