Sounds of Stow Chorus and Orchestra, Barbara Jones, Artistic Director
Zoom Presentation
On October 5, Sounds of Stow will be hosting Charlie Anderson, Artistic Director of the Wayland Concert Series and a regular performer with Sounds of Stow. Did you ever wonder how a wind instrument makes tones? Or how trumpet valves work to make a chromatic instrument – and how trumpets made chromatic music before valves were invented? What’s a cornetto? Join this Zoom presentation on the History of the Trumpet to find answers to these questions and take a musical journey to sample favorite trumpet excerpts from different eras and different genres.
This event is open to all. For information on how to join, visit our website below or email  info@soundsofstow.org.

Sounds of Stow Chorus and Orchestra, Barbara Jones, Artistic Director
Zoom livestream concert
Sounds of Stow Chorus & Orchestra is sponsoring James Dargan, a frequent baritone soloist with our group, in a free livestream concert, accompanied by pianist Mark Whitlock.  Join us to hear James’s newly created program, “Oh Glory 2” (OG2). The program, which is tailored to this important moment in our lives, will range from pieces by Duke Ellington and Moses Hogan to Mr. Dargan’s own compositions.
In Mr. Dargan’s words, “While the first ‘Oh Glory’ was all about showing the silliness of musical and racial boxes, ‘OG2′ is all about exploring the different facets within the ‘box’ of Black composers, and the differing viewpoints on Blackness in the poetry they set to music. I hope that the complexity and variety of these songs shows that again, boxes are silly, in music and in life. I invite my audience to explore and break free along with me.”
Information on how to join this livestreamed event will be available on our website.  Donation suggested.
