ECMP concert linked to Dickinson poems

A concert of music by American, French and Czech composers featuring acclaimed soprano Sarah Pelletier of Scotch Plains, N.J., and pianist Lois Shapiro of Watertown, will be hosted by the Essex Chamber Music Players on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Hartleb Technology Center on Northern Essex Community College’s Haverhill campus, 100 Elliot St.

Pelletier and Shapiro will perform “Jehovah’s Watch” by Amherst resident Eric Sawyer, music professor of composition at Amherst College. The piece is based on six Emily Dickinson poems and is in keeping with ECMP’s theme of music about local history. Sawyer previously composed “Earthly Store” for ECMP, inspired by works of Valley poet and Andover early settler Anne Bradstreet.

Also on the program are Ravel’s “Chansons Madecasses,” based on exotic poems of 18th century Creole poet Evariste-Desire de Parny; three Gershwin preludes and two songs from “Porgy and Bess” arranged by ECMP cellist Emmanuel Feldman of Newton, and Czerny’s “Fantasia Concertante.”

General admission is $15, seniors $10 and students $5. Free to NECC students with college ID.

Night of Worship and Inspiration planned

A Night of Worship and Inspiration featuring the Andy Needham Band and Jaimie Jamgochian will be held on Sunday at 6:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church, 217 Main St.

More information is available by calling 978-374-7491.
