This performance will feature Part 1 with selections from Parts 2 and 3 along with carols and music for the season.  The amazing acoustics and historic beauty of St. Anne’s make it the perfect location to experience this much-loved oratorio, which takes on extra intensity and meaning under Mr. Green’s direction. Performance includes a unique addition in large-screen displays of music, images, translations and biblical quotes that bring the work’s message to modern audiences.

Broadway in Annapolis: Kiss Me, Kate+
February 15 & 16, 8 p.m.
at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts

With Cole Porter’s signature wit and catchy tunes, Kiss Me, Kate has been a hit on Broadway and on film.  Written by Samuel and Bella Spewack, life imitates art in this story of the volatile relationships within an acting company performing William Shakespeares’s Taming of the Shrew.  Stars Fred and Lili (and their Shakespearian alter egos Petruchio and Katharine) battle it out in the name of love and independence.  This musical includes such memorable songs as Why Can’t You Behave, Another Op’nin’ Another Show, So in Love and Brush Up Your Shakespeare, just to name a few!  Broadway in Annapolis productions are all about the music so you’ll see and hear the Annapolis Chorale and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra as well as a super cast of talented actors.

All students are invited to attend this concert FREE!
