Through the Seasons
March 5, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pmTickets starting at $25
To support the health and well-being of our singers, our audience, and our community, all our plans for future concerts are tentative. Visit our Music in Place page for the latest updates.
The major piece in this concert 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, 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 same program will also be presented on Sunday, March 7th, at 4PM.
