CUC Music: Sun Feb 22

Sunday morning’s solo piano selections feature works by Unitarian composers. Several of Norwegian composer Edvard Grieg’s Lyric Pieces and the opening movement of the Hungarian Béla Bartók’s Suite, Op. 14 comprise the Prelude. Arthur Foote served as organist of Boston’s First Unitarian Church for over 30 years, starting in 1878. The “Romance” from his Suite in d minor, Op. 15 is performed as the Offertory. In addition, CUC’s Choir will be on hand with selections by Ruth Elaine Schram and John David. Read on for more programming details.
