"AWAKE MY SOUL AND SING" CELEBRATES THE JOY OF SONG.
The popular Pacific Voices choir presents their 2012 Spring concert "Awake My Soul and Sing" on Saturday, May 19, 7:30PM at the First Congregational Church, 900 High Street in Santa Cruz. Under the new leadership of conductor Sean Boulware, this musical offering celebrates the power of music to awake our spirits and bring joy to our souls.
Performing in a range of styles--from the exquisite beauty of Eric Whitacre's Seal Lullaby to the stirring Yo Le Canto Todo El Dia by David L. Brunner to the high energy Swahili adaptation of The Lord's Prayer, Baba Yetu by Christopher Tin and Chris Kiagiri--this community choir of more than sixty singers introduces audiences to unique songs from around the world.
Sean Boulware is the new conductor of Pacific Voices and is joined on stage by assistant conductor Kitchy Burdett and accompanist David Long, as well as soloists, small ensembles and instrumentalists from within the choir. Mr. Boulware is a sought-after conductor, adjudicator, clinician and vocalist throughout the United States and Europe. He has prepared choirs to sing with Josh Groban, Michael McDonald, and Tommy Simms and will be conducting choirs at the 2012 Summer Games in London. Sean appears regularly at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center.
"Awake My Soul and Sing!" is a gift of song from Pacific Voices to the community. Whether you are a returning fan or a newcomer curious to hear a broad repertoire of music from around the world, this concert offers an abundance of vocal traditions and the richness of sharing music.
