CUC Music: Sun May 10

Join us this Sunday for a musical celebration of Mother’s Day. On the program are solo piano works by such female composers as the eighteenth-century Vienna-born Marianne von Martinez, Felix Mendelssohn’s older sister Fanny, and Robert Schumann's beloved wife Clara. In addition, depictions of maternal love and tenderness are provided by Tchaikovsky and the African-American composer R. Nathaniel Dett. CUC’s Choir is also on hand to perform two uplifting and moving selections. Read on for programming details.
