First Performance of the Spring

Cuivre! performed during the worship service at Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church in Merced, on March 16, 2014.

The horn choir opened the service with Handel’s Fughetta, then played Morning Has Broken, arranged by Ken Mackie. The Chancel Choir joined in singing with the horns in an arrangement of Amazing Grace. Cuivre! then performed Fantasia on My Father’s World, another arrangement by Mr. Mackie.

In addition to joining the congregation in a couple of hymns, Cuivre! ended the service with Fanfare from Rondeaux by Mouret, also known as the theme from Masterpiece Theater.

The horn choir received numerous compliments and has been invited to come back anytime and play anytime.
