Stars I Shall Find - Songs of Night and Stars and other Wonders
Music by Mozart, Effinger, Lauridsen, Whitacre and more
Performed by the Evergreen Chorale, Christine Gaudreau, conductor
Saturday, April 21 at 7:30pm, and Sunday, April 22 at 3:30pm at Rockland Community Church (map), a wonderful acoustic environment featuring beautiful views of the Continental Divide.
Please join the Evergreen Chorale and a chamber orchestra for a wonderful evening of music as they perform choral works featuring the themes of night and stars, spanning over two centuries of musical literature. From Mozart's masterful evening vespers (Vesperae Solennes De Confessore, K. 339) composed in 1779, to Eric Whitacre's Seal Lullaby, published in it's choral arrangement in 2008, you will hear sparkling stars of the choral repertoire. Other selections include Morten Lauridsen's Shining Night, 3 of Aaron Copland's fun folk song arrangements, Cecil Effinger's Four Pastorales with oboe solo, and more. Under the direction of Christine Gaudreau, the Chorale's 90 voices will be accompanied by pianist Ellen DeJonge and chamber orchestra.
Ticket prices range from $14 to $21, with special discounts for seniors, students, and groups of 10 or more. To purchase tickets, go to www.evergreenchorale.org or call (303)674-4002.
