Cascadian Chorale

Philip Tschopp, Conductor

Heather MacLaughlin Garbes, Assistant Conductor

with special guest Douglas Cleveland, Organ


Superb 20th-century composers found a golden treasure in the long-neglected English carol, a folk tradition expressing seasonal themes and popular sentiments. Whether sprightly or contemplative, the vintage anthems were shaped into exquisitely artistic arrangements which maintained respect for their folk origins. Join us as the Cascadian Chorale celebrates examples from masterful English composers Britten, Howells, Rutter and Vaughan Williams. This rich heritage is further showcased in eloquent works by American greats Herbolsheimer, Paulus and Dove.
 
Douglas Cleveland, music director of Plymouth Congregational Church, is featured as guest organist. Round out the festive experience by joining the Chorale in a selection of well-known carols!

Women have been a perpetual source of musical creativity and inspiration.  Join us as we sample the diverse richness and beauty of pieces composed by women and those in praise of women. Featured composers span the centuries, from medieval Hildegard von Bingen through Renaissance Rafaella Alleotti to Romantic Fanny Mendelssohn, early 20th-century Lili Boulanger to contemporary Karen Thomas and Alice Parker. Included are selections by rarely-heard Estonian composer Ester Mägi and a world premiere by UW Professor Giselle Wyers.
