Music on Round Hill
Throughout the year, Christopher Kabala, our Minister of Music, plans, organizes, performs, and directs special concerts that often take place on a Friday evening or a Sunday afternoon. He brings musicians of the best caliber from New York City and Fairfield County to perform as soloists and as small orchestras for our own fine Quartet and choir. Recent concerts have featured: Karl Kramer, French horn; Maria Conti, violin; Larry Spivak, percussion; Darren Anderson, tenor; Eleni Calenos, soprano; Vincent Lionti, viola; David Heiss, cello; Laura Hamilton, violin; Susan Deaver, flute; Krystof Witek, violin; David Glukh, trumpet.
The Round Hill Quartet also performs special concerts. The Quartet consists of Risa Renae Harman, soprano; Jenna Hintz, soprano; Patrick Hogan, tenor; and Scott Tomlinson, baritone. Their concerts are most often selections of arias and ensembles from operas of great composers like Verdi, Mozart, Puccini, Beethoven, and Bizet.
Mr. Kabala, an accomplished pianist, regularly performs recitals at the Church on a beautiful Boesendorfer piano. He has played Chopin, Haydn, Scarletti, Schumann, Brahms, Barber, Liszt, Mussorgsky, Wagner, and Messiaen.
He has also reached out to Greenwich Continuing Education and offered a course to adults interested in learning a challenging piece with our choir over a period of weeks and finally performing it at our Church. It is always a thrilling morning of music for us and for them.
The entire community is invited to attend these concerts and the sanctuary is always filled to capacity as people have come to know the excellence of the performances.
