2015-2016 Season – The Road Home
Night Songs: Songs of Peace, Tranquility and Things That Go Bump in the Night
Underwritten by Phillip Spohn and Mary Hickman
Night brings peace and rest from the toils of the day, but sometimes our imaginations come alive in the dark. Come explore music that reflects the many moods of the nocturnal hours. Songs like Ola Gjeilo’s “Dark Night of the Soul”, Andrew Lloyd Weber’s “Music of the Night” from The Phantom of the Opera, Jester Hairston’s “That Old House Is Ha’nted” and many others will fill this enchanted evening of choral music. This concert will be both contemplative and fun.

Of Birds and Bees and Butterflies
Spring is a time of awakening. Of Birds and Bees and Butterflies is a program of music that celebrates the renewal of life in nature. Come revel in the joys of spring with us as we sample centuries of musical expressions that reflect the joys of the natural world.
We’ll be performing all things related to spring, including three movements from Joseph Haydn’s masterwork, The Creation, “Little Birds” by Eric Whitacre, and a rousing rendition of Rollo Dilworth’s “No Rocks A-Cryin”.
The Master Chorale and Youth Chorale will also perform short sets. Join us!

The Road Home
Life is never fully experienced in one instant, but rather a journey through many moments that cause us to grow. The Road Home is a concert about the journey, about finding home. An eclectic mix of Americana, patriotic, popular, folk, and spiritual elements bring together a concert that will inspire.
