Sno-King Community Chorale: Changing Seasons
The Chorale will be featuring a tapestry of selections that will move from the rains of March into the blooms of Spring. In the Pacific Northwest we embrace the rain and yearn for the sun. This concert will do the same.
Frostiana: Seven Country Songs --a piece for mixed chorus and piano composed in 1959 by Randall Thompson, who also composed an arrangement for chamber orchestra and voice in 1965 (the version SKCC patrons will enjoy!)Commissioned by the town of Amherst, Massachusetts to commemorate its bicentennial, the piece premiered there on October 18, 1959.
The town was known for its association with Robert Frost, who lived there for some years. Frost had known Thompson for some time and admired his music; accordingly, it was decided that the commemorative work would be a setting of some of Frost's poetry. Thompson asked to choose his own texts. In the end, the composer selected seven poems, with which he constructed a seven-movement suite of choral art songs:
"The Road Not Taken"
"A Girl's Garden"
"Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening"
"Choose Something Like a Star"
