Of Interest in the Community: Music at St. ThomasOf Interest in the Community: Music at St. Thomas
Sunday, April 23, 4:00pm - 5:30pm

The Royal Chapel in London was the birthplace of some of the greatest sacred music written for the Anglican Church, by composers in the employ of the Chapel who would chart the course of Western music in the 16th through the 18th centuries. Henry Purcell, George Frideric Handel, Dr. John Blow, and Pelham Humfrey (to name just a few) gained world-wide stature as musical icons, and each provided exquisite sacred music to the Royal Chapel at different points in their careers. Their music was also among the first repertoire performed in Episcopal churches in the American colonies and early United States. St. Thomas Church will reverberate with the echoes of English heritage, as the Choir and internationally-acclaimed vocal soloists are joined by an ensemble of period instrument specialists performing on authentic baroque recorders, baroque oboes, baroque violins, viols, harpsichord, and lute. At Home on the Sound is unable to provide transportation to this program.

Tickets are $25; $15 for seniors. Click here to purchase in advance. Tickets are also available at the door.

Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.  Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being. They feel more fluid, confident and graceful in their movements using modern, ballet and folk dance forms. Free.
