            ARTS/CRAFTS/GIFTS

            25th Anniversary Seattle Area Support Groups & Community Center Holiday Tree (& Greenery) Sale. Nov. 28-Dec. 23, 9 a.m.-9 p.m. SASGCC, 303 17th Ave. E. www.sasgcc.org; 206-322-2437.

            Seward Park Clay Studio Winter Holiday Show & Sale. Dec. 5-24. Opening night, 6:30-9:30 p.m., Mon.-Fri., 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sat-Sun, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Seward Park Clay Studio, 5900 Lake Washington Blvd. S. With the closing of the Northwest Craft Center in the re-do of the Seattle Center, there is now no single location for Puget Sound residents to see a representative sample of the variety of ceramics being produced in this area. That is, except during the Thanksgiving-Christmas window at the annual Winter Holiday Sale at Seward Park Clay Studio. This working studio, usually the creative home for a score of resident artists, plus 120+ students, transforms into a retail clay paradise for the holidays.
            What is on view, and available for purchase, is not just the product of those professional and hobbyist potters currently associated with Seward Park Clay Studio, but also art from an additional invited two-dozen local clay artists.             Also impressive is the range of work: sculpture, majolica, functional stoneware, delicate porcelains, raku, wood-fire, wall hangings. Even if you aren’t in the market for purchasing (and prices are remarkably affordable!), just surveying the range of expression in clay is worth a trip to this event.
            A fundraising opening night party, with a suggested donation of $10 at the door, will be held on Friday, Dec. 6, 6:30-9:30 p.m. Attendance gets you first crack at the full shelves, plus a wide selection of finger foods and wine/beer.
Join us in celebrating the diversity of Puget Sound ceramics. www.sewardparkart.org.

            HISTORY OF ELLINGTON’S SACRED MUSIC
            "Every man prays in his own language." –Duke Ellington
            It is this quote that captures the spirit of the three Sacred Music concerts that Ellington premiered in 1965, 1968 and 1973, and that were the culmination of the last, liturgical phase of his life's work in music.
            Ellington's inspiration for the Sacred Music concerts began during the civil rights movement of the 1960s. In his program notes for the first concert he wrote, “How can anyone expect to be understood unless he presents his thoughts with complete honesty? This situation is unfair because it asks too much of the world. In effect, we say, ‘I don't dare show you what I am because I don't trust you for a minute, but please love me anyway because I so need you to. And, of course, if you don't love me anyway, you're a dirty dog, just as I suspected, so I was right in the first place.’ Yet, every time God's children have thrown away fear in pursuit of honesty, trying to communicate themselves, understood or not, miracles have happened."
            The first sacred concert took place in Grace Cathedral in San Francisco in 1965. The Cathedral commissioned the work as part of its yearlong consecration celebration, and Ellington's star-studded orchestra, featuring such legends as Cootie Williams, Cat Anderson, and Pail Gonsalves, performed with a massed choir. The Second Sacred Concert took place in 1968 at the Cathedral of St. John in New York and St. Mark's Cathedral in New Canaan, CT.
            Ellington spent most of his last full year of life composing a notably more pastoral Third Sacred Concert. The compositions were built around the voice of Alice Babs, the soulful baritone saxophone of Harry Carney, and Ellington himself on the piano. The third and final concert was premiered on October 24, 1973 at London's Westminster Abbey. Exactly seven months later Duke Ellington passed away, leaving an insurmountable legacy that included these sacred music concerts, performed hundreds of times during this last decade of his life.
            Ellington's compositions for these concerts drew heavily on earlier pieces, which were then augmented to convey an intense emotion and reverence. The pieces belied Ellington's spirituality that was derived from his roots in the Baptist Church, but was able to transcend denomination with a poignant universalism. The Sacred Concerts, wedding music and spirituality brought the great jazz tradition into the church.
            In his lifetime, Ellington stated this was the most important music he'd ever written, but because of the scale of the music and the sheer number of artists needed to execute each work, Ellington's sacred concerts have rarely been performed in the 30 years since his death in 1974.

            Northwest Boy Choir – A Festival of Lessons & Carols. Dec. 20, 7:30 p.m., Dec. 21, 6 p.m.; Dec. 22, 7:30 p.m. @ St. Mark’s Cathedral (1245 10th Ave. E.) & Dec. 23, 7:30 p.m. @ Benaroya Hall, 3rd Ave. & University St. www.nwboychoir.org; 206-524-3243.

            Orchestra Seattle / Seattle Chamber Singers – Handel’s “Messiah” HWV56. Dec. 21, 3 p.m. First Free Methodist Church, 3200 3rd Ave. W. No other piece of music has become more closely associated with OSSCS than Georg Frideric Handel’s most celebrated oratorio, “Messiah.” For over four decades, audiences have delighted in OSSCS’s complete and uncut performances. A pivotal point in history, the life of Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah or “anointed one,” is the subject of Handel’s 1742 oratorio. A long-standing OSSCS performing tradition, the oratorio raised enough money at its Dublin premiere to procure the release of 142 indebted prisoners, who were thus given the opportunity to experience new life, a gift that countless Christians have experienced through their faith in Jesus over the past two millennia. Tickets: $25 general, $20 senior, $10 full-time student, FREE youth 7-17. www.osscs.org/concerts; 1-800-838-3006.

I will be playing the E Major concerto, Ignacio will play the G Minor concerto, and together we will play the C Major double. Ignacio is one of the best harpsichordists I have every heard. His playing exudes great joy!” With Ingrid Matthews and Laurel Wells, violins; Jason Fisher, viola; Nathan Whittaker, cello. Tickets: $42 general, $38 senior, $10 student. www.byronschenkman.com; 206-215-4747.

            Candlelight Concerts – “Jazzin’ with the Classics by Candlelight for Christmas.” Dec. 28, 7:30 p.m. University Christian Church, 4731 15th Ave. NE. In this program by candlelight, classical and jazz artists and friends from classical and jazz realms meld their musical perspectives and personalities for the third year in an unusual collaboration and festive celebration of the Yuletide season that is guaranteed to generate an abundance of Christmas cheer. Soprano Linda Tsatsanis, flutist Jeffrey Cohan and jazz pianist, clarinetist and flutist Martin Lund team up to bridge contemporary improvisational jazz and art music of Baroque and Renaissance times. Instrumental musicians have "jazzed up" melodies familiar to them in the style of their day for centuries, and this team's virtuoso improvisations on Yuletide favorites, and their renditions of classical standards will bring together the best of jazz and classical worlds. A completely new program for 2014. A reception follows the concert. Suggested donation: $25, $20 or $15, with series passes available for $50. www.candlelightseattle.org; 206-522-0169. (Additional concerts 12/7 & 12/14.)

            Cappella Romana – “Echoes of the Renaissance.” Jan. 9, 8 p.m. St. Joseph Church, 732 18th Ave. E. Dr. Tikey Zes (b. 1927) is the most prolific composer of Greek Orthodox liturgical music in America. “Cappella Romana sings this music as if already in the heavenly realms, and can transport the listener there, as well.” –Fanfare. Long a proponent of Zes’s music, Cappella Romana will perform excerpts of a setting of his “Divine Liturgy” that Cappella Romana released on CD last season. Preceding the music of Zes are excerpts from the “Missa MiMi” by Johannes Ockeghem, who with other masters of the Renaissance inspired Zes’s approach to modal harmony and counterpoint. Zes recorded the Ockeghem “Missa MiMi” on LP with his Berkeley Chamber Singers in the 1960s, at the dawn of the modern Early Music movement. Tickets: $44-$22 with student/senior discount. www.cappellaromana.org; 503-236-8202.

            Seattle Baroque Orchestra – “A Twelfth Night Celebration.” Jan. 10, 8 p.m. (Pre-concert lecture at 7 p.m.) Town Hall Seattle, 1119 8th Ave. @ Seneca St. Guest Director Julie Andrijeski leads Seattle Baroque Orchestra in music inspired by Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, including selections from Henry Purcell’s “The Fairy Queen,” Matthew Locke’s “The Tempest,” and works by Avison, Handel, and Van Wassenaer. Tickets: $45 general reserved, $40 senior reserved, $20 under 25, $27 discount side section. www.earlymusicguild.org; 206-325-7066.
