From Silence to Song: Live Outdoor Performance Series
Venture outside with us to emerge from isolation with song. In painting, “plein air” is a technique that depicts the transformation of an outdoor scene under the constantly changing quality of natural light. As singers, the richness and uncertainty of nature has become part of our new choral landscape as this past year has drawn us outside.
To acknowledge the struggles endured by singers as choirs were silenced during the pandemic, Voices of Concinnity will explore the diametrically opposed through song for four (4) performances as a representation of the varying and ever-changing quality of our experiences of this past year. “From Silence to Song” will feature part-songs from wide array of composers, such as Elaine Hagenberg, Vittoria Aleotti, Claude Debussy, Reena Esmail, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Cheryl Engelhardt, Ralph Vaughan Williams, and more on themes of love, singing, nature, and the promise of spring.
