“Uncommon Practice” to Sing at Holy Family

Music at Holy Family announces the final concert of their fifth season of concerts by presenting the unique chamber ensemble Uncommon Practice in a free concert on Sunday, May 19, at 4 p.m.

Uncommon Practice began as informal gatherings of like-minded musicians seeking a fresh approach to the choral experience, specifically by capturing the collaborative spirit of a chamber ensemble through the intimacy and transparency of early and contemporary music. Their shared passion for this repertoire served as inspiration to establish a performing ensemble: the name Uncommon Practice is a reference to the music that we sing, which largely falls outside the "Common Practice" period of the 18th and 19th centuries. Since 2010, Uncommon Practice has performed around Atlanta, collaborated with Lauda Musicam and the High Museum of Art. In 2014 the ensemble was selected to perform at Spivey Hall for Georgia's Choral Directors Association convention, and has established a unique blend of musical excellence, innovative programming, and unexpected (often humorous) juxtapositions.

Spokesperson Robert Bolyard states, “For this concert at Holy Family, we are especially excited to welcome back founding members who are returning to the region especially for this project! Our program, 'Et Set Terra: Music of Earth, Territories, and Climes,' features works by Palestrina, Weelkes, Aleotti, Purcell, Ticheli, Uematsu, and more, spanning the 16th through the 21st centuries.”

This unique choral program would be of special interest to high school students contemplating an education in choral music.

Following the concert, the Holy Family parish choir will sing choral evensong. A reception follows evensong so that you may meet and greet our guests.

The Episcopal Church of the Holy Family is located on Griffith Road, off Cove Road, across from Dollar General in Jasper. For more information, please see www.holyfamilyepiscopalchurch.net or call 770-893-4525.

Watch for news this summer about the 2019-2020 concert season and keep open the third Sunday of each month from September through May.
