Adam Flatt, Conductor

Thomas Young, Tenor and Narrator

A few program changes have taken place, retaining the thematic thrust of the program. Thomas Young provided a gracious opportunity suggesting masterpieces by Purcell and Handel which are performed with a smaller orchestra.

Keeping William Grant Still includes his suave and charming Serenade.

It’s a dream of a program, and we wish you much enjoyment.


William Grant Still: Serenade

George Frideric Handel: Deeper and deeper still

George Frideric Handel: Waft her angels through the skies

   Thomas Young, Tenor
