This preview has been provided by Women's Voices Chorus.
On Sunday, April 26, 2015, at 3:00 p.m., Women’s Voices Chorus will present Love Notes at First Presbyterian Church, 305 E. Main St., Durham.
Along with the related theme of faith, the theme of love has certainly inspired more poetry and music than any other idea in the Western world in the last two millennia. Our music will highlight some of the many sides of romantic love, including young love, lost love, erotic love, and frustrated love. We also will sing of love for our sisters, justice, humanity, and the natural world. In singing music from places such as Bulgaria, Korea, Germany, Canada, Argentina, and Samoa, we hope to demonstrate both the musical diversity and the emotional universality of this theme. Regardless of the language or place, the desire to experience music and love is a common human bond.
Please join us for a delightful mix of pieces, representing Brahms, Whitacre, Duruflé, Gershwin, and others. The program will include repertoire from Renaissance music to show tunes and beyond.
Women’s Voices Chorus is the Triangle’s only community-based classical chorus for sopranos and altos. We bring to life a wide range of choral music written for women, with a repertoire that extends from medieval chant and Renaissance polyphony to opera choruses and contemporary compositions. We delight in unearthing forgotten gems and introducing new works by active composers, especially by female composers.
Tickets: $15 adult, $5 student available at the door or online at http://womensvoiceschorus.org/product/love-notes/
