Event Date: April 9, 2011
Posted: March 15, 2011
Choir type: Professional Choirs
Join us for our upcoming spring concert:
How Does Your Garden Grow?
Saturday, April 9 at 3:00 p.m.
Wicker Park Lutheran Church | 1502 N. Hoyne Ave., Chicago, IL
Sunday, April 10 at 3:30 p.m.
St. Mary's Episcopal Church | 306 S. Prospect Ave. Park Ridge, IL
Both performances are FREE.
The concert program is a bouquet of fine choral works, spanning William Byrd’s English Renaissance to the rock-infused music of New Yorker Matthew Harris. Audience members can celebrate the arrival of spring with Leonard Bernstein’s French influenced Spring Song, observe the abundant flora through Benjamin Britten’s Five Flower Songs, and experience the theatrical drama of a thunderstorm as depicted in Eric Whitacre’s Cloudburst.
To bring some literal garden growth to the event, WPCS is proud to be partnering with the esteemed Wicker Park Garden Club for the April 9th concert. The club will be providing seed packages for all concert goers at a ‘green’ information table in the fellowship hall of the church after the performance. Audience members will be encouraged to plant some seeds of their own, read about green technologies like recycling and water conservation, and attend a spring gardening session in Wicker Park where the garden club maintains 10,000 square feet of ornamental and training gardens.
