3:00-5:00 pm. From the famous medieval carol, 'Sumer Is Icumen In' to settings of Shakespeare songs from 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' and 'The Tempest' by early 20th century composer Amy Beach, the program is suffused with the music of nature. The first half will feature English madrigals by Thomas Morley and John Bennet, and a variety of American works: Kirke Mechem's "He's Gone Away," "Kansas Boys," and "New York Girls"; and the hilarious "Seasonings," by P. D. Q. Bach, otherwise known as Peter Schickele. The concert will conclude with the rousing "Celebrate," by the composer and tenor Robert Puleo. Tickets: $20. Reservations for the concert may be made by calling Frank Paine at 203-322-2052. Also, to learn more, visit Musica Plenti's website at www.musicaplenti.org.
