Flute And Organ Concert At Nativity Episcopal Church May 21

Thursday, May 4, 2017

Nativity Episcopal Church presents Rebecca Davis playing works for flute, piccolo and organ with organist Kristopher Schwinn on Sunday, May 21, 10:30 a.m. during the worship service.

Works include those by Mozart and Donjon, a piccolo sonata by Vivaldi and Krebs’s Fantasia for Flute and Organ.  Each work provides a new chance to contrast the orchestral flute with the organ’s eight flute ranks in different combinations.  

This performance is part of Nativity’s monthly Rising Artists series that features Chattanooga’s young musicians playing works for solo instruments and organ. Nativity also presents a Mini-Concert series with organist and music director Kristopher Schwinn. 

Rebecca Davis, 21, a junior dual History Education and Music major, is Principal Flute of the SAU Symphony Orchestra and studies with Kristen Holritz, Principal Flute of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera.  Rebecca began playing the piano at age six and flute at age 10.  Upon graduation next year, she plans to teach secondary history and music appreciation before pursuing a graduate degree in history.  Artistically, her primary interest is music of the late Romantic and 20th Century.  Rebecca plans to remain an active musician throughout her life whether or not she is able to directly integrate music into her future work as a historian. 

Childcare is provided.



Bob Tamasy: Finding Real Hope In A ‘Hope-So’ World

I’ve always enjoyed music, although I only sing so-low (that people can’t hear me), and the only instruments I’ve ever played were the drums, in high school and college. (I still play the steering wheel if I hear something with a good beat while I’m driving, but I don’t think that counts.) Anyway, words of familiar songs often come to mind, even simple ones that carry a good ... (click for more)

Eric Youngblood: The Curious Case Of The Talking Dinner Plate

We are richer than I previously realized. You know how I know? A dinner plate told me. Really. A nearly 22-year-old dinner plate assured me of previously unconsidered riches one evening. Don't worry. It didn't actually speak to me. But its presence communicated a hidden world of wealth to me. As I hastily (and rarely!--as some might want to clarify ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Kids Are Still Funny

I have never seen nor heard of a child actually getting one’s “head pinched off” but by modern-day standards the threat just switched in overdrive. There are children in our communities who haven’t been to school for six long days and the brutal temperatures drove the little darlings to inside where they most predictably stirred up all manner of mayhem. Back when I was in Elementary ... (click for more)
