This is Jess, I was wondering if you could post on Good Morning Gloucester about the 10% Off Jewelry Sale we’re having this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (10 am – 5 pm). We hope people will keep us in mind and shop local for Mother’s Day, prom, and graduation jewelry! We’ve got a wide range of styles and eras, from antique Victorian to vintage costume jewelry and modern sterling silver jewelry. I’ve attached two photos that could go with the post, and I apologize for the short notice. Let me know if there’s any further information you need! 

Best,

GLOUCESTER MEETINGHOUSE, BACH ORCHESTRAL CONCERT AT 8:00PM SATURDAY, MAY 21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                            May 3, 2022       

GLOUCESTER MEETINGHOUSE, BACH ORCHESTRAL CONCERT AT 8:00PM SATURDAY, MAY 21

Rounding out its 2022 Spring Concert Series, the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation will present a concert by the Appleton Consort of orchestral works by J.S. Bach on period instruments, Saturday, May 21, at 8:00 p.m. in the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church at the corner of Middle and Church Streets.

PRESENTING SOME OF BACH’S MOST BEAUTIFUL ORCHESTRAL WORKS

The program features the Orchestral Suite No. 3 (BWV 1086) and the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 (BWV 1050) plus the Violin Concerto in A minor (BWV 1041) and two Sinfonias (from Cantatas BWV 209 and BWV42). The concert is subtitled “An Evening at the Kaffeehaus,” referring to the Zimmerman coffee house in Leipzig where many of Bach’s great secular works were performed. The ensemble is comprised of violin, viola, cello, bass fiddle, flute, oboe, bassoon and harpsichord.

The Appleton Consort is an ensemble of the finest Baroque instrument players from around the country and is conducted by cellist Mark Dupere, Professor of Music at Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Dr. Dupere studied at the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague, where he specialized in Baroque cello and performance practice of the Romantic era. He received his Doctorate in Orchestral Conducting at Michigan State University.  He conducts in the Bach tradition, as a member of the ensemble.  These musicians will delight the audience with authentic sounds, historically-informed performance practice, and great exuberance that will bring these beloved Bach orchestral works to life.

Tickets are available at the door and online: $60 for preferred seating, $40 general, $10 students, and under 12 free. Parking is available on the Green, entered through the stone pillars on Middle Street.  The accessible side entrance with an elevator is located at 10 Church Street.

Established in 2015, The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, responsible for historic site preservation plus civic, cultural, and community programs at the iconic Meetinghouse, built in 1806 for the first Universalist congregation in America. A secular organization, separate from the Gloucester Unitarian Universalist Church, the Foundation draws approximately 6,000 visitors annually with its diverse programming while overseeing the major restoration needs of an enduring American symbol of equality, social justice, and freedom of religion. Its 125’ bell tower, with original Paul Revere bell, octagonal lantern steeple, and gilded pennant weathervane, remains a beloved guiding light on the Gloucester skyline as the Meetinghouse enters its third century of service to the Cape Ann community.
