February performances include annual 'Society for the Doctrinal Affectation of Baroque Music' concert, more
The University of St. Thomas Music Department welcomes the public to the free music performances listed below.
- 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3, in St. Mary’s Chapel at the St. Paul Seminary, 2260 Summit Ave.: "The Society for the Doctrinal Affectation of Baroque Music" -- whose very name pokes fun at the perceived snootiness of classical aficionados -- presents its seventh annual concert. The "Society" of two -- guitarist Dr. Christopher Kachian of the St. Thomas Music Department and organist and harpsichordist Dr. David Jenkins, liturgical music director at the St. Paul Seminary -- will perform Bach’s "Sonata for Gamba and Harpsichord" and "Trio Sonata," Schubert’s " Arpeggione Sonata" and Buxtehude’s "Harpsichord Sonata." They’ll be joined by St. Thomas art historian and curator Dr. Michelle Nordtorp-Madson, who will provide visual treats and scintillating commentary. In other words, these folks have fun with music and art.
- 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4, in Brady Educational Center auditorium: Clarinetist Jessica Gordon presents a student recital.
- 7:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 5, in Brady Educational Center auditorium: Pianist Jon Iverson presents a faculty recital.
