Cascadian Chorale's "Flights of Fancy"

Location: Washington, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Voicing: Mixed
Ever since the first human gazed upward to birds soaring aloft has flight spurred the imagination. Eric Whitacre’s Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine brilliantly depicts the Renaissance thinker’s visionary struggles. Those inspirational birds appear in Stanford’s The Blue Bird and works by Vancouver composer Stephen Chatman. Composer-in-Residence Greg Bartholomew provides music for three philosophical poems by his father, a pilot in World War II. We are also excited to premiere a new work by Joy Porter, who sings in our alto section. But surely the highlight of this concert is Thomas Tallis’s massive, forty-part motet, Spem in alium; if ever a piece of music were a “flight of fancy,” this is it!
