2014 May - Unto the Earth - Peninsula Women's Chorus Spring Concert
St Mark's Episcopal Church
Palo Alto, CA
Share this event:

PWC presents the world premiere of Heart-Spells by San Francisco composer Mark Winges to complement earth songs by American composers Stephen Paulus, Ron Jeffers, and Brian Holmes. A phrase used to describe dance in Latin (pede terram pulso) literally means "to beat or strike the earth with the foot," and the singers explore this concept with dance-inspired songs and a choreographed performance of Famine Song inspired by stories of Sudanese basket weavers praying for rain. The program will close with arrangements of African American spirituals, whose origins stemmed from singing while working the earth. Come indulge your hunger for beautiful, lush music!

Program Highlights: Heart-Spells (PWC commission) by Mark Winges; Quant j'ai ouy le tabourin by William Brown; Tango in 5 by Sandra Milliken; Famine Song by Vida, arr. Matthew Culloton; and a selection of music honoring the African American spiritual tradition.
