UPDATED Jan. 3: As Cantilena Chorale rebounds from the long 2020-21 performing arts hiatus, it held a live-stream concert Dec. 12, "Fire in the Garden: Choral Music about Climate Change." This performance, named for the premiere of its timely commissioned work by Giselle Wyers, revives the postponed 2020 spring program under Interim Music Director Dr. Allegra Martin and pianist Kelvyn Koning.
This on-line performance is available for viewing through Wednesday, Jan. 12, 2022, with ticket purchase here >>
The group has also announced the planned release of a preconcert video-recorded interview with the composer, who discusses creating “Fire in the Garden” with Martin.
More information and a link to the interview will be posted to the website.
With the addition of new selections, including Nancy Telfer’s dynamic “The Blue Eye of God” and Moira Smiley’s percussive “Greta Sails,” bringing this concert to life has been a joyous challenge for our singers.
