The Concord Academy Performing Arts Department presented Membra, a beautiful piece of music theater, in the dance studio on May 4 and 5. The cantata for singers and dancers, featuring the music of Dietrich Buxtehude, a Baroque Dutch-German organist and composer, was a collaboration between CA Singers and Dance Company. Membra was directed by dance teacher Richard Colton, with music direction by choral director Michael Bennett.

Amy Spencer, head of the Performing Arts Department, called the music “amazing” and “challenging in many ways to our students, but in the best way.” Bennett described the co-created show as “1680 as you’ve never seen it before!”
