CUUC Music: Sun Nov 15

Music and words predominate this Sunday at CUUC. Soprano Kim Force sings two haunting settings of Emily Dickinson’s poetry by Aaron Copland. Music Director Adam Kent also plays several of Felix Mendelssohn’s Songs without Words, pieces which seem to ask whether music itself can convey meaning even without language. Consider attending the service this Sunday for more of Adam’s thoughts on music, language, harmony, and humanity, when he delivers the sermon. Read on for programming details.
