I Have Had Singing

May 19, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Steven Sametz’s classic I Have Had Singing is one of several works featuring texts about the powerful act of singing and the lasting joy that it can bring, even in times of adversity. Mark Kilstofte wrote Everyone’s Voice on a World War I poem by Siegfried Sassoon in 2022 with the war in Ukraine on his mind. Craig Hella Johnson composed Song from the Road in 2018 on a poem by his friend and collaborator Michael Dennis Browne. Also on the program: British composers Benjamin Britten and E.J. Moeran. Sets by Irving Fine and Scott Joplin are among the chorus’s all-time favorites.

Tickets on sale beginning October 15.

All NAS singers and staff are fully vaccinated. All audience members will be asked to provide proof of vaccination and to remain masked throughout the performance.
