3:00 pm - 4:45 pm
An uplifting concert of choral works by American composers who looked to American poets for their inspiration. These two art forms are clearly meant for each other.
Robert Frost: among America’s best poets and renowned for his use of rural life to depict complex social and philosophical issues. Randall Thompson: a composer whose name is synonymous with 20th century American choral music. Robert Frost’s poetry is coupled to Randall Thompson’s musical interpretations in “Frostiana” plus other works. Additional American poets/composers to be featured include Walt Whitman/Norman Dello Joio (“A Jubilant Song”), and Elizabeth Bishop/David Brunner (“I Am in Need of Music”). The audience will also be treated to a premiere of “Tudor Triptych”, a trilogy composed by the Chorale’s Music Director, Michael Conley, based on 16th century English poetry, including a touching poem of lost love by Queen Elizabeth I.
