The opening concert on Tuesday,
November 6 marks two Centennial CELEBRATIONS: the End of World
War I and the Birth of American composer, conductor and educator,
Leonard Bernstein. Joining the Chorale in Ralph Vaughan Williams’
dramatic cantata Dona Nobis Pacem will be soprano Laura Sutton
Floyd and baritone Kyle Hancock. The second half of the concert will
be a tribute to Mr. Bernstein with selections from “Candide”,
“Mass”, “Fancy Free”
and “West Side Story”. Pianist Gerald Anderson, organist Linda
Hamilton, strings and percussion will accompany the Chorale.
SACRED SONGS & SPIRITUALS on Tuesday, February 19 will celebrate Black History Month. The evening of inspirational hymns and songs of faith for men’s, women’s and mixed voices moves from the mystery of Gregorian chant of Ave Maria to the soulful Go Down Moses, through masterful arrangements of beloved hymns, enriched by Linda Hamilton at the organ. Special guest jazz vocalist Reggie Deas will narrate James Weldon Johnson’s God’s Trombones and add his incomparable style to a host of well-known spirituals, including Ol' Man River, Lift Every Voice and more.
