Heartstrings - 25th Anniversary Concert
Description:  "In celebration of its 25th Anniversary, Cantare Chorale presents a collection of remarkable, musical works that will ‘pull at your heartstrings,’ written by Norwegian, Latvian, British, and American composers. The collection includes, back by popular demand, Ola Gjeilo’s ‘Dark & Luminous Night of the Soul’ with the addition of Ola’s ‘Sacred Heart’ accompanied by string quartet. These selections integrate the voices, strings, and piano resulting in intricate works are sure to rouse audiences’ hearts and souls.

"Cantare Chorale will also premiere a newly written work in remembrance of those who we love, written by local composer Shelley Rink, ‘Dear Men and Women.’ The song is based on John Hall Wheelock’s poem of the same name.

"Next, double bass and drums will accompany the chorale in a highly original and effective concert setting of the Latin Missa Brevis ‘A Little Jazz Mass’ composed by Bob Chilcott in which the various movements embrace a variety of jazz styles. This concert will feature special guest instrumentalists and promises to be a truly memorable experience."
