Nine Greek Muses

  • Rockville United Church

The Nine Muses of Greek Mythology have inspired artists for centuries, and so too, they’ve inspired the diverse programming for our spring concert series. Works include Benjamin Britten’s “Hymn to St Cecilia” (a selection inspired by Polymnia), as well as the world premiere of “Homage to Ourania” by Katherine Boder, winner of our Young Composers Competition.

Six Degree Singers would like to extend thanks to the Arts & Humanities Council of Montgomery County (MD) for their generous support throughout our 2015-2016 season.

Love Songs and Waltzes

Six Degree Singers, Artistic Director Rachel Carlson, and Assistant Artistic Director Katelyn Aungst invite you to our next concert series, “Love Songs and Waltzes.” We’ll be exploring romance in music through all of history, covering renaissance madrigals by Dowland and Gesualdo, a musical theater favorite from Camelot and modern classics like Willie Nelson’s “Sad Songs and Waltzes” (arranged by one of our own choir members!) to name only a few. The main feature will be Brahms’s beloved Liebeslieder Waltzes for 4-hand piano and choir. There is something for everyone in this exciting program and we hope to see you there!
