Clerestory - Into the West
Date: March 19, 2011
Location: California, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs
Composers of all kinds have been drawn to the big sky, crashing surf, and boundless opportunity of our Pacific coast. With Into the West, acclaimed 9-man vocal group Clerestory performs works by artists who have been drawn to the energy and majesty of America's furthest frontier. Into the West features works by Eric Whitacre, Pablo Ortiz, and Darius Milhaud (who taught for many years at Mills College in Oakland), among others. The concert includes a setting of sonnets of Michelangelo by Seattle-based composer Eric Banks, who will be present to discuss his piece with the audience.
