Long Ago… Far, Far Away

Posted on: August 9th, 2022

On “May the Fourth,” our final concert of Season 16 leans into themes inspired by the “Star Wars” series of films. While the music is not directly from the films or their soundtracks, the broader themes speak to us in ways that open up our musical imaginations to ideas and places far, far, away.

Amadeus

Posted on: August 9th, 2022

Our Masterworks concert features the work of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of the most recognizable and well-known classical composers. His REQUIEM is one of the most familiar pieces of choral-orchestral music ever composed. Although not completed at the time of his death, his detailed sketches provided enough material for his contemporaries to finish the work for him. Accompanied by a professional orchestra, this work will speak to you with the power of a genius composer at the peak of his abilities.

Carols & Lullabies

Posted on: August 9th, 2022

Our Christmas concert celebrates a return to carol singing and especially AUDIENCE carols! From early carols such as “Gaudete” (16th Century Latin carol) and “There is no rose” (15th Century English carol) to modern carol arrangements by Alfred Burt, John Rutter, and Dan Forrest, we will raise our voices together in praise of the Christ child. We also explore carols with roots in Spain and Latin America in Conrad Susa’s “Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest,” accompanied by harp, guitar, and marimba.

Animale Carnivale

Posted on: August 9th, 2022

Our fall concert celebrates the beauty, diversity, and humor found in the animal kingdom. Clever and quirky poetry from Ogden Nash and quotes from other children’s literature find their way into this program which will appeal to the young and to the young at heart. Much of the program is lighthearted and accessible with many short, miniature movements.
