Through the Seasons

March 22, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Tickets starting at $25

The major piece is a world premiere of our commission from Robert Paterson for chorus and marimba. NAS audiences may remember his wizardry with an “impossible” text (Row, Row your Boat) in Life is But a Dream as well as his Choral Suite from A New Earth. The women will sing Persichetti’s Winter Cantata, that is accompanied by flute and marimba, which we enjoyed singing in 1988 and 1995, and it deserves another outing. The men will do a Britten mini opera scene with piano called The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard.
Chamber chorus will sing five of the seven Songs of Springtime by E. J. Moeran, an Irish composer of the early twentieth century. This is a delightful set of quirky madrigals.

The Boatman’s Dance Minstrel Song, arr. Aaron Copland
The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Bernard Benjamin Britten
