Featured Event

        Meadowlarks Holiday Concert

The Meadowlarks kicked off the Holiday Season with beautiful musical selections including the wonderful contributions of Dennis Freese on clarinet and saxophone, and Alan Berman at piano. Add Donna Swanson's excellent accompaniment. What a lovely community event!

 
The concert started with a rousing “Fanfare and Alleluia”, then “Benedictus”, and “Gaudeamus Hodie” which included Dennis on soprano sax and Donna Stuart adding a second piano part. Shifting gears, we performed an arrangement of a traditional Hanukkah tune, “Hanerot Halalu”, joined by Dennis on his clarinet. Then, Dennis and Alan performed a wonderful Klezmer piece “A Night in the Garden of Eden” that had us all wanting to get up and dance. 


Winter became the focus in the next two selections, “Snow Begins to Fall” and “Evening in December”. We began the Christmas music with “Calypso Lullaby”. Alan and Dennis followed that with a beautiful rendition of the Holiday favorite, “A Christmas Song” (Chestnuts roasting on an open fire….) The final three choral pieces included an unusual arrangement of the “Coventry Carol”, a spiritual, “Mary Had a Baby”, and Andy Beck's, “Jonathan’s Bell Carol”. 


Finally, we joined our voices as a community to end the concert with caroling. It is always a joy to hear all the residents singing together. Such happy faces and joyful voices!....
