Our 41st Season

This spring we offer two performances of Songs of the Magnificent Creation.  Choral director Dr. Linda Raney says, “We’re excited to finally offer this program. Originally selected for our 40th anniversary, this music has inspired our hearts and stirred our souls as we return to rehearsing and performing live. We hope you will join us in celebrating the ‘magnificent creation’ of our world.”

From flora and fauna to the stars and heavens, this concert takes us on a journey into the beauty, diversity and wonder of nature. Composers Gwyneth Walker, Mark Sirett, Daniel J. Hall, Randall Thompson, Andrea Ramsey, Anne Boyd, René Clausen and Kim André Arnesen are our guides, using poetry of such time-honored, inspirational poets as Robert Frost, Julian of Norwich, Sara Teasdale, May Swenson, Langston Hughes and Hafiz. For an encore, we will sing a lovely Ukrainian lullaby.

The premiere of this year's new commission, The Raney Songs, serve as the centerpiece of the program. Composed by Linda Rice Beck and using the beautiful poetry of Raymond Raney, these four touching pieces will lift your heart.

Please join us in celebrating the beauty of nature and love!
