Schola concert set for Nov. 20

The B16 Schola is preparing its first concert: 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, 2010, at Holy Ghost Church near downtown Knoxville.

We hope to see you there! (For details, e-mail me.)

Choral sets will include works from Byrd to Bruckner, with a fairly heavy emphasis on the Renaissance period. Our friend Charles Walden will perform two organ sets in between.

There’s no charge for the concert, but we will take up a free-will offering. Donations will benefit Holy Ghost, which has been so welcoming to us, and the schola’s music budget.
