Our 30th Season
Sunday, February 21, 5:00 p.m.
with Kentucky State University Concert Choir
COVID-19 has affected people all over the world. While it may not unify all people, it has highlighted support for front-line caregivers and, perhaps, for each other. One of the selections on this program, “Everyone Sang,” was composed recently, based on a poem written at the end of the 1918 pandemic. The words are appropriate today.
Racial issues are being addressed in America and other countries in ways that give us hope that people from diverse backgrounds will grow more in tune with each other. “We Walk in Love,” written recently, borrows freely from some of the keywords in “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” We welcome the Kentucky State University Concert Choir to this concert, featuring selections by both choirs and culminating in several combined works!
Sunday, April 18, 5:00 p.m.
Our 30th anniversary celebration begins with music and poems from Kentucky composers and writers. Featured is a commissioned work by composer Joseph Baber, setting a poem by former Kentucky poet laureate, George Ella Lyon. Kentucky writers will read from their works. Our celebration will continue into the next season with a concert of Scandinavian and Baltic music.
