From appetizers and ale to cakes and coffee, this concert will leave patrons hungry, with songs about food from the classics, Broadway and jazz. Featured will be the hilarious PDQ Bach work, The Seasonings, written by Peter Schickele.
According to Penny Hall of Easton Choral Arts Society, The Seasonings, a satirical rendition of Haydn’s oratorio The Seasons is an audience favorite. The four seasons of Haydn’s work are now replaced by seasonings such as tarragon, leeks, sesame, and curry and incorporated into a story about the search for the perfect ingredients for a recipe. The result is a tasty smorgasbord!
In The Seasonings, the chorus is accompanied by an orchestra. Schickele is internationally recognized as one of the most versatile artists in the field of music creating four feature films. The additions of Jacque Offenbach’s, The Recipe may entice patrons to bake a cake, while Coffee in a Cardboard Cup, by the composers of Cabaret, will tickle the funny bone. The concert’s repertoire also includes works by Paul Carey, John Rutter, Allen R. Petker, Greg Gilpin, Kirby Shaw, and Sigmund Romberg.
