Concert Season 2010-2011


Autumn

Thanksgiving, Oktoberfest, All Soul’s Day, back-to-school…cultural events litter the fall, and we will celebrate them with music. As befits an ensemble in the forested Pacific Northwest, we will present several works about our arboreal friends, including I go among trees, a recent work by local composer Giselle Wyers. Brahms’s masterful motet Warum ist das Licht gegeben dem Mühseligen? captures the dark richness of autumn.

Winter poster

Winter

Snow, star-filled nights, wind…nature reserves some of her most touching and intimate moments for the winter. The Christmas season takes center stage with Holst’s Christmas Day and three carols by the comical genius, P.D.Q. Bach. This concert will feature our Composer-in-Residence, Linda Gingrich, in several arrangements of seasonal favorites. John Rutter, Ástor Piazzolla, and Harold Darke will also contribute to our festival of the beauty and magic of winter.

Spring

Love, flowers, birdsong…no season brings as much color
to our lives and surroundings as spring. Works by Randall Thompson, Composer-in-Residence Linda Gingrich, and Artistic Director Gary Cannon celebrate the joys of love. Favorite madrigals by Monteverdi, Morley, Gershwin and P.D.Q. Bach evoke the season’s brightness and levity. In honor of our rainy home, we include Edward Elgar’s gentle The Shower. After all, this is a tribute to spring.

Summer poster

Summer

The morning sunrise, a day in the garden, baseball…summer may be short-lived in the Northwest, but its pleasures are deeply loved. Samuel Barber’s masterpiece, Reincarnations, captures both the season’s calm and intense moments. Eric Whitacre’s A boy and a girl depicts two young lovers alone at the beach. We will close the season with Rossini’s William Tell Overture. Surely
there is no sunnier piece to celebrate summer!
