Playing with passion

Young local musicians display talents at BCMA Showcase

By Simone Wichers-Voss

On his piano keyboard, Ludwig van Beethoven let his fingers do the talking, and when he stopped for air, he offered advice for young musicians.

“To play a wrong note is insignificant; to play without passion is inexcusable!” the late great composer is quoted as saying.

Phil Nacke, chairman of the Bosque Civic Music Association’s Third Annual Showcase of Young Musicians, offered this quote to calm the nerves of young performers at the Bosque Arts Center on Thursday, March 30.

Bosque Chorale presents epic concert

By Simone Wichers-Voss

The Bosque Chorale will present selections from Felix Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Thursday, April 20 at Trinity Lutheran Church at 7:30 p.m. with Maestro David Anavitarte leading a choir of fifty-four voices accompanied by strings and keyboard. Soloists include Karen Atkins, Karen Thomasy, John Upchurch, and Steve Watson.

The fiery oratorio recounts the tale of the Old Testament prophet Elijah as he confronts both the political and spiritual apostasy of his day. God has stricken the land of Israel with drought and famine in response to the nation’s wickedness. Elijah intercedes on behalf of the nation and challenges the priests of Baal, a Canaanite fertility god, to a showdown. Both Elijah and the priests are to present sacrifices and the God who answers by fire will be the god of the land. Baal is a no-show.

The community gathered in these places vital to daily life; they offered a meeting place, gave them a sense of community in a still strange land, offered chances to exchange information on farming, building a homestead, getting supplies and much more.
