American Voices, Classic and New

March 20, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Tickets starting at $25

This program of American music is a combination of old favorites and brand new pieces. Barber’s Reincarnations was last on an NAS program in 2008, sung by Chamber Chorus, who will sing it again. NAS first sang Copland’s In the Beginning in 1980 when we put together an all-Copland 80th Birthday Celebration, attended by the composer. Since it is a great work and a choral showpiece, we have programmed it periodically over the decades and look forward to performing it again.

The program will include two pieces by the esteemed American composer Adolphus Hailstork, and the chorus will perform a work by Undine Smith Moore for the first time. The Chamber Chorus will sing a challenging work by Rindfleisch that is new to us: Careless Carols on a text by Tagore. Other new works are an arrangement by Ron Perera of e.e. cummings’ poem, as freedom is a breakfast food, originally for women, now for four voices, and Harlem Night Song by Tara Mack, an alumna of NAS. The last of the new pieces is a delightful work by Dale Trumbore, who is a young composer making her name in the American choral world. In the Middle is a tender, funny, rueful look at middle age in our time.

Tickets will go on sale October 15, 2021.
