Santa Cruz Mini-Subscription
FEBRUARY 10 - PERFORMANCE at HOLY CROSS CHURCH is at 5:00 pm
Homelessness touches us all every day, and this program will strive to raise awareness around this challenging issue. The centerpiece will be David Lang's "The Little Match Girl Passion," which won the Pulitzer Prize in music. It is an intensely powerful and moving work based on the writings of Hans Christian Andersen and the music of Johann Sebastian Bach. The concert will be rounded out with repertoire about home and searching for safe haven, including (by popular request) a reprise performance of Somewhere from West Side Story, featuring movement and sign language by the singers.
JUNE 22 - PERFORMANCE at PEACE UCC is at 8:00 pm
We conclude our 23rd season with hope for better tomorrow by bringing awareness to the horrific issue of human trafficking in the Bay Area and the world. We shall respond with music that reminds us of our own power to affect change! The concert will support The Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition: an organization that believes "...eradication [of human trafficking] is possible only when the collective impact of individuals and groups comes to bear upon this multifaceted issue. As we mobilize the public to engage the issue, we envision a slave-free San Francisco Bay Area and beyond."
Repertoire will feature music from around the globe, ranging from modern classics such as Joshua Shanks amazing rules to live by (written for The Choral Project in celebration of its 20th anniversary), Sarah Hopkins Past Life Melodies (an other-worldly song that features overtone singing), to contemporary pop tunes, such as the acappella setting of Three Dog Nights Shambala. Audience favorites Frank Tichellis There Will Be Rest, John Davids You Are the New Day, and Daniel Hughes Babethandaza (complete with full-chorus choreography) will round out this meaningful concert.
