The Simple Gifts Concert Series of the Glenview Community Church presents British organist and composer Paul Ayres. Come at 2:45 p.m. for Ayres' pre-concert talk. His compositions usually involve words – solo songs, choral pieces, music for theatre productions – and he is particularly interested in working with pre-existing music, from arrangements of folksongs, hymns, jazz standards and nursery rhymes to ‘re-compositions’ of classical works, as in Purcell’s Funeral Sentence, 4A Wreck and Messyah. The building is handicap accessible and has free onsite parking. It is 3 blocks west of the Glenview Metra North train station. Visit www.gccmusic.org or call 847-724-2210 for further details.
