June 2017 Concerts
C4 is excited to present an evening of new music for chorus and electrified ensemble, featuring a trio of works on the subject of love.
Anthony Korf's Cantata for chorus and jazz ensemble explores love in its different forms through poems by Millay and Cummings, and a heartfelt note from a high schooler. The music is jazzy, but with deliberate allusions to pop music — the B52s in particular.
Jonathan David's Hounds of Spring, for chorus and rock power trio, is a vigorous and rhythmic anthem to love, resurrecting the progressive rock sound of early Rush to set the words of the British romantic poet Swinburne.
Stephen Paulus' Poemas de Amor sets anonymous 16th century Spanish love poems for chorus and percussion.
Also on the program: works by Artemis Polonyi, Nicholas Rich, Casey Rule and Karen Siegel.
With guest artists:
Miranda Cuckson, Violin
Oren Fader, Guitar
Andrew Funcheon, Drums
Kaden Henderson, Bass
Christopher Oldfather, Piano/Keyboard
Matthew Ward, Percussion

Directions to Our Lady Of Mercy
By Subway (15 minute walk from the station):
Take E/F/M/R to Forest Hills-71st Av. It is an express stop, and the E and F run express in Queens, so they should be a faster trip from Manhattan. Exit onto the SOUTH side of Queens Blvd, and walk down Continental Ave for 10 blocks; if you are going in the right direction, you will cross Austin St after one block, then pass under the LIRR train tracks. The cross streets are alphabetical; take a right on Kessell St. The church is on the right at the end of the block.
For dinner beforehand, there are plenty of restaurants on Austin St.
By LIRR (12 minute walk from the station):
Take the train to the Forest Hills stop. Exit onto Continental Ave, and head south (into the residential section, away from the shops) for 8 blocks. The cross streets are alphabetical; take a right on Kessell St. The church is on the right at the end of the block.
