CANCELLED ! March 2, 2007: Birbyne and Organ Concert at Calvary Baptist Church


The concert organizer informed us this morning that the concert is cancelled. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Joy from Our Lady of Vilnius was nice enough to alert me to this event, which is taking place at (Gasp!) another church. The text of the notice is as follows:

"Please join with the Nyack College School of Music - New York City at Calvary Baptist Church, Friday, March 2, 2007 as we celebrate with an exciting group from Lithuania. Watch as they perform authentic Lithuanian music on the bribyne, a Lithuanian horn and organ. Bring your families and friends.

Date: March 2, 2007
Time: 7:00 PM
Location: Calvary Baptist Church 123 W. 57th Street
The concert is free of charge

The concert organizer offers a link to the artist's, Vytautas Tetenskas', web site, Curonian Lagoon, which has information about the artist in English and Lithuanian. There are also two audio files available for listening. The organizer describes them:

" might want to hear both recordings -- the first is slow and lyrical and the second is faster and more sprightly."

"It's an interesting sound, I think, sometimes oboe-like and sometimes more like a sweet trumpet."
