The Camerata di Sant' Antonio will perform at Blessed Trinity Church in Buffalo on Sunday, March 29, as part of the church's Trinity concert series of beautiful music in a beautiful space.
Under the direction of Christopher Weber, the professional music ensemble will present "Mozart Noir," celebrating the music of gifted black composers.
Founded in 2002, the Camerata seeks to present concerts that preserve and celebrate the cultural heritage of the community, featuring premier works in every performance. Selections for the March concert will include works of the Chevalier de Saint George (known as the "Mozart Noir"), whose music inspired the young Wolfgang Amadeus and made music history.
Blessed Trinity Church, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is considered to be the purest replication of 12th-century Lombard-Romanesque architecture in the United States. The building has also gained international recognition for its splendid acoustics, making it an ideal setting in which to experience the music of the Camerata.
Church docents will provide pre-concert tours of the church from 2:15 to 2:45 p.m. There will also be a reception in the parish hall following the concert, courtesy of the Amberleigh Retirement Community at Williamsville.
Tickets for the concert are $17 in advance (716-856-3626) or at the door. Funding from the city of Buffalo will provide free admission for students under the age of 15 when accompanied by an adult, or high school students with valid school identification.
Blessed Trinity Church is located at 317 Leroy Ave. and is wheelchair accessible with secured off-street parking.
