The Peninsula Women's Chorus presents CANTEMUS! Let Us Sing!
“Cantemus - Let us sing!” Two selections of "Cantemus" by Lajos Bardos' and Vic Nees joyfully open the PWC’s spring concert. This vibrant program celebrates the essence of singing through Shaker songs, reflects on music’s transformative power in Veljo Tormis’s “The Singer’s Childhood” and “An Aboriginal Song,” and explores the longing of Vecchi’s “Mi Vorrei Trasformare”: “I’d like to turn into a cricket, just in order to sing.” The program also includes works by Franz Schubert (Der 23. Psalm), Imant Raminsh (Windwolves), Karl Korte (Spring), Alberto Grau (Como Tu), and Stacy Garrop’s defiant and rousing “Thou Famished Grave,” commissioned by the PWC in 2007. We close the program with a set of beloved American spirituals: Amazing Grace, Go Where I Send Thee!, Ride On, King Jesus, and Bright Mansions (arr. K. Lee Scott for the PWC). We'll be taking much of this repertoire on our European tour this summer where we'll also be competing at "Seghizzi 2011" the 50th International Competition of Choral Singing in Gorizia, Italy. Come celebrate with us! Something for everyone and a program not to be missed!
