Samuel.Coleridge.Taylor.with.textOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOn Sunday, March 29, 2015, the Camerata di Sant’ Antonio will perform at Blessed Trinity Church as part of the church’s Trinity Concert Series of “beautiful music in a beautiful space.” Under the direction of Christopher Weber, the professional music ensemble will present Mozart Noir, celebrating the music of gifted Black Composers.
Founded in 2002, the Camerata seeks to present concerts that preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage of our community, featuring premier works in every performance. Selections will include the U.S. premier of the Haitian Dance Suite by Samuel Coleridge Taylor (aka the “Black Mahler”), and works of the Chevalier de Saint George (known as the “Mozart noir”), whose music inspired the young Wolfgang Amadeus and made music history.
Blessed Trinity, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is considered to be the purest replication of twelfth-century Lombard-Romanesque architecture in the United States. The building has also gained international recognition for its “splendid acoustic,” making it an ideal setting in which to experience the music of the Camerata.
Church docents will provide pre-concert tours of the Buffalo Landmark and its “beautiful space” from 2:15 – 2:45 p.m. There will also be a reception in the parish hall following the concert, courtesy of the Amberleigh Retirement Community at Williamsville.
Tickets for the concert are $17 in advance (716-856-3626) or at the door. Funding from the City of Buffalo will provide free admission for students under the age of 15 when accompanied by an adult or high school students with valid school identification.
Blessed Trinity is located at 317 Leroy Avenue (between Fillmore and Grider) and is wheelchair accessible with secured off-street parking.
