Chicago Choral Artists Concert
Event Date: April 14, 2014
Posted: April 15, 2014
Choir type: Professional Choirs
With one foot in the past and one foot in the present, guest conductor Wayland Rogers' rich and varied program provides a comprehensive look not only at the sacred music borne of the early decades of the nation, but also the work of contemporary composers drawing on the same traditions for inspiration. Featuring music selected from The Sacred Harp, The Southern Harmony, and even oral tradition with the assistance of our conductor, with more current selections from Bobby McFerrin, Stephen Paulus, and Rosephanye Powell, join us as we make our way through American history by way of shape-note hymns, African-American spirituals, and Shaker songs — and as we explore these echoes of the past in modern sacred writing. Concerts on May 3, 4 and 11. For venues and times visit. http://www.chicagochoralartists.org
