The BSO Commemorates Jeanne d'Arc

The 600th anniversary of Joan of Arc's birthday is coming up next January. People have many reasons for celebrating the Maiden. Some of my favorite things about Joan of Arc were her intelligence, her courage, and her loyalty -- traits that we need in any age.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra will be presenting Honegger’s Jeanne d’Arc au Bûcher on November 17 & 18 in honor of the 600th anniversary of French heroine Joan of Arc’s birth.

I don't typically post twice in one day, but I wanted to share this now because of the October 15th deadline below...


* The Opera section of Suite101 gives more information about Honegger's 'Joan of Arc at the Stake'
* A Honegger biography
* 600 portraits for Joan's 600th birthday (due October 15th!)
* The Joan of Arc Project in New Orleans
* Joan of Arc: Heavenly Warrior

Wow, 600 years. Sounds like a wonderful concert.

The Icebook video was really neat.
