Hudson Valley Chorale (Sparkill, NY) presents “Made in America – Choral Music from an American Perspective”

Location: New York, USA
Choir type: Community Choirs
The Hudson Valley Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Jason Tramm, closes out its 2012-13 season with an amalgam to 20th century American chorale works in its Spring Concert, “Made in America – Choral Music from an American Perspective.” Leonard Bernstein’s masterwork, “Chichester Psalms” will be the pivotal selection, with other Bernstein offerings from “West Side Story” and “Mass” in the mix. The remainder of the program will present works by Aaron Copland, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Moses Hogan, and Gwyneth Walker – a true representation of modern American music. A multiplicity of musical styles will be showcased, from the simplicity of Shaker and Quaker hymns, and the vibrancy of spirituals through the syncopated rhythms of the jazz influence on the American classical model as evidenced in Gershwin’s “Porgy & Bess” and the aforementioned “Chichester Psalms”.
No matter what your musical preference, you will find something on the program to move your spirit.
