Our spring concert, One World; One Song, is a varied program that begins with a set of sacred pieces, ranging from the late classical composer, Giovanni Battista Gajani, to the contemporary composers David Conte and Will Todd, bridged by the beloved setting of "Nigra sum" by Pablo Casals. The next set is comprised of two lengthier works about the importance of our earth as expressed by J. David Moore, and the musical painting of a running river by Joan Szymko. The set ends with a multi-movement piece by Diane Abdi Robertson that uses the words of a 9-year-old Jewish boy's dreams for exotic journeys he hopes to take, as preserved in a school notebook and written shortly before the holocaust. The Choraliers, a smaller ensemble from the chorus,
will sing three songs about romantic and spousal relationships by contemporary American composers. The Honors Choirs from Berkeley and Hornsby Middles Schools will join to conclude the concert with choral adaptations of
Aaron Copland's well-known Old American songs, Ching-A-Ring-Ching,
I Bought Me a Cat, and Zion's Walls.
We would love to sing at your upcoming special event! Contact us for more information and scheduling.
