Concert Season 2014-2015

50th Anniversary Season


Mighty Harmonies

In honor of our fiftieth anniversary season, we asked you, our audience, what you’d like to hear sung at a Cascadian Chorale winter concert. From the dozens of suggestions, we have chosen a collection that ranges from the Renaissance to the modern day. Featured composers include Victoria, Billings, Brahms, Elgar, Howells, Walton, and Lauridsen. These works are shining examples of the beautiful, mighty harmonies that only a fine choir can provide.

Welcome Home

The Cascadian Chorale celebrates fifty years with the launch of a new recording, only the second in the ensemble’s history. This concert will consist of the repertoire recorded last spring. The highlight is Frostiana, Randall Thompson’s settings of poetry by Robert Frost. We also feature works by the colonial American composer William Billings and five Northwest composers: Eric Lane Barnes, Christopher Lee Fraley, Bern Herbolsheimer, Jeremy Kings, and Giselle Wyers.

The Importance of B

We close our fiftieth anniversary season with four major composers, each of whom represents the highest choral art of their respective eras. From the Renaissance we hear three works by William Byrd. Bach’s double-choir motet Singet dem Herrn represents the Baroque, and the Romantic era is reflected in Schaffe in mir, Gott, by Brahms. From the twentieth century we sing Benjamin Britten’s light-hearted Flower Songs.
