This concert featured a top-notch quintet of Baltimore Symphony Orchestra brass musicians including Principal Horn Phil Munds, Principal Trumpet Andrew Balio, Assistant Principal Trumpet René Hernandez, Principal Trombone Aaron LaVere, and Tuba player Chris Tiedeman. They were joined by Brown Memorial’s Music Minister Michael Britt at the organ.
The first half of the program was traditional brass and organ pieces by Handel, Mozart, Gabrieli and others. The second half included holiday works by Guaraldi, Tchaikovsy and Steve Allen (yes, that Steve Allen), arranged for brass ensemble by Sean O’Laughlin, as well as other favorites of the season. BSO Percussionist Barry Dove joined the second half.
British born Carol Williams’ performances have taken her all over the world, to venues that include Paris’s Cathedral of Notre Dame and the Church of Ste. Sulpice, London’s Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral, and King’s College, Cambridge as well as Yale, Harvard, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, and The Riverside Church in the United States. She played the inaugural recitals on the newly installed organ in Beijing’s Forbidden City Concert Hall.
Williams is especially popular in California, where from 2001-2016 she served as San Diego Civic Organist, playing a huge outdoor Spreckels organ in all kinds of weather to rapturous crowds. Defying stereotypes, she presents concerts of great genre diversity, elegance, and charismatic humor that appeal to a wide audience.
Williams is a regular radio broadcaster and hosts the video series Tour Bus, which features pipe organs around the world. She was elected an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music in recognition of her contribution to music.
Brown Memorial’s Chancel Choir and Soloists will present a program of Francis Poulenc’s music, including his famous “Gloria.” Princeton University Chapel Organist Eric Plutz will accompany the choir. Michael Britt, Brown Memorial’s Minister of Music, will conduct.
