Musica Viva Concert and Online Auction Fundraiser

Musica Viva Concert and Online Auction Fundraiser (in-person)
Saturday, July 31
Join the Musica Viva Kentlands Orchestra for an evening of music. The first concert of the season will take place on July 31, 2021 at 7:00 p.m. After a season of virtual performances, this concert will be in-person on the lawn of the Kentlands Clubhouse. The rain date is August 1 at 7:00 p.m. The repertoire includes Percy Grainger’s Molly on the Shore that brings together two Irish reels. Originally written as a gift for Grainger’s mother, it is a light piece and perfect for the string ensemble who will be performing.
Other pieces include Novelletten Allegro Molto No. 4 by Samuel Taylor-Coleridge, a Black composer born in England who drew inspiration from traditional African music, and Praeludium und Allegro by Fritz Kreisler, featuring Alessandra Cuffaro on solo violin. As a special surprise, there will be an original composition.

Be prepared for a duet with the orchestra. Bring your own cowbell, kazoo or triangle and join in the fun! Small noise makers will be handed out to the smallest members of the audience. (Supplies are limited.) An online auction will begin on July 15. Preview the items and experiences available and place your bid. Please consider making a donation to support this concert series.

This is a Kentlands Community Foundation announcement.

Musica Viva sounds like a lot of fun.  I especially like the part about bringing your own kazoo or cowbell.

This sounds wonderful, Roy. Of course, these days, anything that is in-person sounds wonderful to me. I love the idea of audience participation with cowbells, triangles, and kazoos.

Good morning Roy. Nothing like a concert on the lawn on a Saturday evening. The wife and I regularly attend the concerts on the lawn in downtown Chicago. They are finally back! Enjoy your day.

I am sure that people are excited about being able to attend this event in person, they just aren't the same when they are online.
