Concert 1 : Ware is The Music Series

4:00 PM

The opening programme in our inaugural concert series “Ware is the Music!” features Artistic director, Charles Humphries and our guest artist, internationally acclaimed organist, Maxine Thevenot. Organist and Director of Music at St. John’s Cathedral, Albuquerque, Ms. Thevenot has become one of the most prominent and successful recitalist throughout the world, wowing audiences with her performances of music spanning all centuries. With her informative introductions and wonderful, endless humor, her recitals are always well received. Mr. Humphries joins her to initiate the season with some renaissance and baroque songs and arias for voice and keyboard before Ms. Thevenot continues the evening at the console with her dazzling and technically flawless playing. Originally Canadian, Ms. Thenevot’s early training was on a “Casavant Freres” organ, a similar instrument to the one at Ware. She mentions that it would be like “returning home”. This is a concert not to be missed and  certainly a wonderful way to kick start the “Ware is the Music” concert series.
