First Wednesday Concert
February 7, 2018 @ 12:10 pm - 12:45 pm
Wednesday, February 7, 12:10 p.m.-12:45 p.m.
The men’s vocal ensemble Bamburia will perform our February concert.
Recently founded by St. John’s Choir bass-baritone Chris Fominaya, Bamburía is a group of male vocalists in the D.C. area who aspire to bard-dom. Several of its members have been singing together for more than a decade in various groups and ensembles. The current group of five bar disciples has renamed themselves “Bamburía”, effectively meaning “a home…with bamboo.” Operating under Arthur Fiedler’s principle that there is “no bad music, only boring music,” Bamburía strives to present their art as eclectically as possible. To bring forth the joviality of the renaissance, and the complexities of the new era. Bamburía recently performed their inaugural concert on January the 6th, in College Park.
They will sing a cozy program of seasonal a cappella pieces including composer such as William Billings, Pablo Casals, and Anton Bruckner.
Contrabass Christopher Fominaya, tenor Nicholas Levy, and baritones Kevin Schellhase and Justin Dean–members of our very own St. John’s Choir and Parish Choir will be featured along with countertenor George Branyan and tenor Gordon Geise.
