Spring Music and Art Collaboration

Spring Music and Art Collaboration at First Congregational Church of Camden 
The Friends of Music Concert Series, an outreach program of The First Congregational Church of Camden, is pleased to present a special spring concert and art installation with local composer/musician Marianna Filippi and visual artist Kathryn Oliver in the church sanctuary at 55 Elm Street, on Sunday, April 28, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
The concert will feature three original compositions by Marianna Filippi, each written in celebration of the coming of spring and renewing our connection to the Earth. The first piece, "Morning Garden”, is performed by flautist Maho Hisakawa and accompanied by improvisational dancer Shana Bloomstein. The second piece, "Earth, isn’t This What you Wanted”, is performed by soprano Kristyn Murphy, flautist Maho Hisakawa, and composer/accordionist Marianna Filippi, and features a poem by the Bohemian - Austrian poet Rainer Marie Rilke. The third piece, "Springtime Evening”, is performed by Maho Hisakawa on flute and Marianna Filippi on piano.   
Following the concert Kathryn will talk about the sacred symbolism in her paintings, HEAVEN and EARTH, that draw from the Christian Iconography of the Western Medieval and Byzantine tradition. The painting installation depicts the Christian Holy Season and will be hanging in the church sanctuary until June 3rd. For more information about Kathryn’s work, visit www.kathrynoliver.com 
As always, each Friends of Music concert is free and open to the public. Donations to sustain the program will be cheerfully accepted at the door. A reception including refreshments will follow in the church’s Pilgrim Room. For more information, visit camdenucc.org or call the church office at 207-236-4821.
