Worcester Chamber Music Society - A Rare Smile Café concert

6:30 PM-9:00 PM 

Nuovo Restaurant
92 Shrewsbury Street
Worcester, MA 01604

We know Beethoven as a composer of great seriousness, taking on difficult and deep subjects, often with majesty and as often with sudden anger. This café concert will show you Beethovens rare, and for that reason, precious smile. Both the Serenade for flute and strings, and the Serenade for String Trio are sunny and easy going. Marches, Polonaises, a Gypsy flair here or a reminiscence there, all are ebullient and carefree showing that Beethoven, too, could be full of easy graces.

Cost: Dinner and Concert $59, Concert only $29

Highest Heaven: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection

Worcester Art Museum
55 Salisbury Street
Worcester, MA 01609

Highest Heaven explores the cultural and religious world of the Spanish Colonial possessions of the Altiplano (high plains) of South America. Through approximately 100 paintings, sculptures, ivories, objects in silver, and furniture, the exhibition traces the development and spread of the Catholic faith through the creation and usage of religious art for devotion and instruction.

The objects are drawn from the distinguished collection of Roberta and Richard Huber of New York City. Over three decades the Hubers have built one of the most significant assemblages of this material in private hands.

Rather than group works by media as an introduction to the world of Spanish Colonial art, the exhibition returns the objects' original context as, literally and symbolically, articles of faith. It focuses on the didactic aspects of the collection, especially as they relate to the life of Christ, the Christian religious orders, and the cult of the saints. It explores ways in which such religious art was used in the propagation of Catholic beliefs by use of visual art to illustrate biblical moments in the life of Christfrom the Annunciation and birth to the Crucifixion and Resurrection. Furthermore, it examines visual representations of saints, exemplar proponents of the Christian life. Finally, Highest Heaven will focus on religious orders that provided organizational and philosophical underpinnings for the propagation of the faith.

The exhibition is organized and circulated by the San Antonio Museum of Art.
