Deffner plays organ concert Sunday

The Davis Community Church Concert Series for 2011 continues Sunday with an organ recital, “Taste of Germany, Taste of France,” to be presented by David L. Deffner. He will play two works by the great German master Johann Sebastian Bach, followed by a variety of French works, from a lullaby to a battle march to a fiery toccata.

Deffner is a church organist who has performed with the Sacramento Symphony Orchestra, the Camellia Symphony, the Sacramento Area Bach Festival and the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra.He teaches at American River College and is director of music at Davis Community Church.

He received his doctorate in church music from Northwestern University and has studied organ with Karel Paukert, Philip Gehring and Wolfgang Rübsam.

The concert begins at 4 p.m. in the church sanctuary at 412 C St. in downtown Davis. The suggested donation of $10 supports the Davis Community Church Concert Series as well as local and international charitable organizations.

A family of cantors will perform

The Reich family will perform a special concert at 5 p.m. Sunday at Congregation Bet Haverim, 1715 Anderson Road in Davis. Cantors Barry, Linda and Brian Reich are the children of Israel Reich, who was the cantor at Congregation Beth Shalom in San Francisco for many years. The three children are fifth-generation cantors and now Rachel Reich-Freed, 20, is extending the tradition to a sixth generation.

The family will perform a wide variety of music, from cantorial music to musical comedy, Broadway to opera. They’ll sing in Hebrew, English, Yiddish and Ladino.

Tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for children and students. For tickets, call the synagogue office at (530) 758-0842 or visit http://www.bethaverim.org.

Vivaldi concertos on Sacto program

Sacramento Baroque Soloists presents a concert of six Vivaldi concertos at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Sacramento at 8 p.m. Saturday, March 26, and 3 p.m. Sunday, March 27. The church is at 1701 L St.

The program will showcase several of the players in six contrasting concertos. Flutist Cathie Apple will perform “Il Gardellino,” the Concerto in D major that evokes the sounds of a goldfinch with trills, leaps, and florid passagework. Violinist David Sego will perform “Tempesta di Mare,” or “Storm at Sea,” which Vivaldi expresses through the sound of crashing swells and contrasting calm.

Cellists John Lutterman and Michael Lawson will play Concertos in G minor and B minor, which exploit the rich and poignant tonal capabilities of the cello. The group also will perform the Concerto for Four Violins in F major (reminiscent of the concertos of Corelli), and the raucous Concerto for Strings in G minor.

The Vivaldi concert is the fourth in the Sacramento Baroque Soloists’ ninth season. Admission is $25 general, $20 for senior citizens and $10 for students. For more information or to purchase tickets, call (916) 705-3806 or visit http://www.sacramentobaroque.org.
