American Voices: Rhythms and Rhymers


Sunday, January 26, 2014
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.

Since 2010, Hudson Chorale, Westchester’s largest chorus, has been performing in venues throughout the County, bringing the best in choral singing to the Hudson Valley. Concerts have included traditional choral pieces such as the Brahms Requiem, lesser known works such as the Mass in D by John Knowles Paine, and more contemporary works by composers such as the incomparable Morten Lauridsen. The chorus now enjoys a region-wide reputation for outstanding programming and superb artistry. The Chorale’s goal is to provide both audience members and singers with the best possible experience in choral singing, offering exciting programs that include the entire choral repertoire - from the great masterpieces of the past to engaging contemporary compositions.
