Flood Benefit Concert(November 17. 2019, Higginsville, Missouri) The Bethel Underground Recorder Consort of North
Kansas City will join with Buckner
Elementary School recorder students and the Warrensburg Recorder Consort to perform
a pre-Holiday program to benefit the Ebenezer United Church of Christ of
Levasy, Missouri and its mission to
the community of Levasy at 4:00 p.m. on
Sunday afternoon, November 17th, at the Salem United Church of
Christ in Higginsville, Missouri.
currently is meeting in Buckner after the entire City of Levasy was inundated
by flood waters on June 1 after two levees were breached. Ebenezer is in the
process of considering rebuilding in order to maintain its presence as the only
church in Levasy. “It’s going to be a
very long process,” said Rev. Jeanne Lischer, Ebenezer’s pastor. The benefit is being held to help raise funds
to enable rebuilding. The Warrensburg
Recorder Consort, formed and directed by Patrick Larkin, comprised primarily of
professional musicians plays in venues throughout the greater metropolitan
Kansas City area. It has an active
performance schedule with musicians from as far west as Washington State and as
far east as Jefferson City. The consorts
and Buckner Elementary students, will play music ranging from medieval European
Court selections to contemporary ballads.
According to Larkin, “Of special interest are the very small and very
large recorders played in the Consort. In addition to the usual Soprano,
Alto, Tenor, and Bass recorders, group members play the smaller Sopranino and
Octave Soprano and the large Great Bass and Contrabass recorders. (The Contrabass
stands at almost six feet tall.) The
Consort is one of only five such ensembles in the Heartland that are registered
with the American Recorder Society.
Underground Recorder Consort recently was formed at Bethel United Church of
Christ and consists of all professional musicians playing soprano, alto, tenor
and bass instruments.
The groups began
participating in joint play-alongs this Fall and hope to continue to perform
together on special occasions such as this benefit concert.
Greatly beloved by the Community, Buckner Elementary
students have gained widespread acclaim for their “Village Kids” choral
performances locally share the presentation of a Mozart piece with the Consorts.
The event will provide a rare experience of music rarely heard, and is
open to the public free of charge. A
“Free-Will” offering will be taken to benefit Ebenezer and its mission.
