World Premier Composition Performed at Gloucester Meetinghouse

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                            MAY 5, 2022


The highlight of a program on the international remembrance day of the Holocaust called Yom HaShoah, that was presented in the historic Gloucester Meetinghouse on Middle Street last Sunday, May 1st, was the world premiere of a composition by Leslie Steinweiss called “The Grip of Evil: The Endurance of Hope.  It was performed with narration by Judith Black by an ensemble including strings, flute, clarinet, piano and two vocal soloists, conducted by the composer.  The event was co-hosted by Temple Ahavat Achim and the Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation.

The program had to be postponed two years due to the pandemic.  A group of donors from the Temple, led by Eve and Phil Cutter, commissioned the Steinweiss piece in 2019 and Sunday’s performance was the long-anticipated premiere.

Two other original pieces were performed during the event.  Stephen Bates presented his composition called “Remembrance of Things Past and Future” for solo clarinet and Abigale Reisman presented her piece “Gedanken” for string trio.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                            May 3, 2022       


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.


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.

It’s gonna be a real good time! Dave Sag’s blues Party @ The rhumb Line 7-10pm. Put on your dancin shoes!

Thursday at the The Rhumb Line: Chris Fitz! . This guy is something else. You should Czech him out if you already don’t know. He writes, he plays awesome gootar and sings like an angel. Chris P. Anzelone, suono buoni, drums. And I’m franticly looking for a suitable fourth person since our regular scheduled blues robot was brutally disfigured in a horrible wine bottle opener accident.

Alas, Alek Razdan joins in on the fun! So stop feeling like you’re living in the Bermuda Triangle and come out to play! hours 7 to 10.
