cl 170514 belcanto300x300If by chance you’re at a point in life where some solace would be welcome, try to hear this Carolina Live program.  The excellent Greensboro-based choral group Bel Canto Company present a concert titled In Time Of Strife, and there’s music to assuage such a time from such composers as Arvo Part, Gerald Finzi, Morten Lauridsen, and even Dolly Parton and Carly Simon.  The program also features the Rutherford Chamber Consort performing Johannes Brahms’ Piano Quintet in G-minor.  Ahhh…soothing just to think about it!
