ECO Musical Moments
No. 10 - 5/8/2020
Greetings all, and welcome to the TENTH edition of ECO Musical Moments. Tonight’s video features ECO Music Director William “Bill” Hill and his extraordinarily talented daughter Nadya Hill performing two short selections as encores at our most recent Chamber Recital Series event.
The first piece, “Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us“, was written by Sam Phillips and recorded by Allison Krause and Robert Plant for their 2007 album “Raising Sand”. Sister Rosetta Tharpe, the inspiration for this song, was an influential guitarist and singer of the ’30s and ’40s who turned the gospel genre on its head with her infusion of blues and jazz with traditional spiritual music.
The second piece, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow“, needs no introduction – nor does Nadya’s wonderful performance of this classic.
