Moments In Time - The Arizona Repertory Singers
Event Date: April 14, 2013
Posted: March 20, 2013
Location: Arizona, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
Travel through time with Arizona Repertory Singers and experience a harmonic confluence of choral styles encompassing traditional choral music, modern madrigals and tuneful ditties, including works by centennial 'birthday boys' Verdi, Wagner and Britten.
Compositions in the concert will include the 'Ave Maria' by Verdi, the 'Festival Te Deum' by Britten and the 'Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin' by Wagner.
According to Music Director, Dr. Jeffry Jahn, this concert highlights "both the momentary, fleeting experience of performance (for musician and audience alike) and the timelessness of choral compositions that have endured, in some instances, for more than 400 years."
Dr. Jahn also points out, "From my perspective, it is no coincidence that the last pieces written by this concert's featured composers - Verdi, Wagner, Britten and Grieg - were vocal works, although all of them were equally well-versed in writing instrumental music. What makes vocal music unique is the added component of text. When true musical masters combine these elements, the result is something celebratory and memorable."
