  • - On December 7, 1941 at 7:55AM (local time), "a date that will live in infamy," nearly 200 Japanese aircraft attacked Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, long considered the US "Gibraltar of the Pacific." The raid, which lasted little more than one hour, left nearly 3,000 dead. Almost the entire US Pacific Fleet was at anchor there, and few ships escaped damage. Several were sunk or disabled, while 200 US aircraft on the ground were destroyed. The attack on Pearl Harbor brought about immediate US entry into WWII, a declaration of war being requested by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and approved by Congress December 8, 1941.

  • | 7:00pm - 9:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, holiday, concert, Tallis Scholars, choral, early music, Christmas
    - After five years, The Tallis Scholars (based in Cambridge, England) will again perform a concert at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church (6050 North Meridian Street, Indianapolis, IN 46208).

    The Tallis Scholars specialize in performing a cappella sacred vocal music written during the Renaissance by composers from all over Europe. They are currently recognized as one of the world-leaders in this field, having risen to a place of prominence among other professional ensembles. Led by director Peter Phillips, The Tallis Scholars are “The rock stars of Renaissance vocal music.“ (New York Times).

    Producing music for over forty years and earning multiple award-winning recordings for Gimell, Peter Phillips and The Tallis Scholars have successfully established sacred vocal music of the Renaissance as one of the great repertoires of Western classical music through performances on every continent except Antarctica. The Tallis Scholars bring Renaissance music to a wider audience in churches, cathedrals and venues including the Royal Albert Hall, the Sistine Chapel, the Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall New York, the Philharmonic Hall Berlin, Saint Mark's Venice, Seoul Arts Centre Korea, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre London, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall, Beijing Concert Hall, Megaron Athens and the Opera House Sydney.

    Dedicating his life to the research and performance of Renaissance polyphony, Peter Phillips founded The Tallis Scholars in 1973. He has appeared with them in 2000 concerts and made over 60 recorded discs developing interest in polyphony all over the world. "Speaking of birds, it was also wonderful to glimpse Peter Phillips’s conducting: hands opening as if setting free a dove, or closing to punctuate with dotting-the-i’s exactitude. I found myself wishing I could get a choir’s-eye view to witness Phillips’ complete – lifelong – inhabiting of this music." (The Observer, September 2015). Peter Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through good tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of sound which he feels best serve the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. It is the resulting beauty of sound for which The Tallis Scholars have become so widely renowned. [“one of the UK’s greatest cultural exports” (BBC Radio 3)].

    This concert is sponsored by St. Paul’s Music and Indianapolis Early Music. Tickets are $40 and can be purchased by visiting spmindy.org.
