Church of the Mediator (pictured) in Micanopy may look old and small, but they do a lot of good music. For the 2015/2016 season, they are starting a concert series they hope to be a regular part of the community music scene.
TV & Movie music
On October 25 (Sunday) at 2:00pm I will be the performer at the first concert of the year. I will be presenting a solo piano program of your favorite TV and Movie music. There will be a wide variety of styles and shows/films presented. There will also be a short audience request section (see if you can stump me) and a section where the audience has to try and guess the music. Films include Star Wars, Chocolat, Superman, Chocolat and Mission Impossible. TV shows include The Simpsons, Star Trek, Doctor Who and Rawhide.
Holiday Concert featuring Theater Organ
For those that came and heard Peter Kinzie and I perform earlier this year and last December, this year Peter will be presenting a solo Christmas program. This will be on December 6, tentatively scheduled for 2:00pm. (Check back here closer to the date or follow the church’s facebook page). Peter will be bringing in a theater organ and presenting a wide variety of styles.
Scheduled for January 2016, exact time and date to be announced. Come hear the Shapenote singers. A tradition from early American music in the South, this style of unaccompanied singing uses specially shaped notes to help learn and sing the music.
Trumpet and Organ
Scheduled for Spring 2016, exact time and date to be announced. A guest organist and trumpet soloist will be featured in this classical music program. The church’s very capable electronic organ will be featured. (The church is way too small to have a pipe organ. If you didn’t know it was electronic you’d think it was a pipe organ. Come to the program if you doubt it).
