An English Tea and Concert
Praeclara invites you to immerse yourself in an afternoon of British music and culture inspired by the music and culture of Edwardian English, familiar to many as the time period portrayed in the PBS series Downton Abbey.
The afternoon will begin with an outdoor high tea service in the Second Presbyterian Church courtyard. Enjoy traditional Yorkshire treats. The tea service is open to participants ages 10 and older. (For younger children, free childcare will be available.)
The gathering will then move indoors for a hand bell concert presented by the Praeclara Ringers. The repertoire includes the Downton Abbey theme music along with a selection of music popular during the post-Edwardian period. Singers from the Praeclara vocal company will also present a selection of English art songs.
The handbell program will include
Suite from Downton Abbey John Lunn
La Calinda Frederick Delius
The Entertainer Scott Joplin
Reverie Claude Debussy
Pastoral Symphony George Frideric Handel
Hungarian Dance No. 5 Johannes Brahms
