Sing in Spring!
The final performance in the 2022-23 Tulsa Chorale season features a cappella choral singing and choral pieces accompanied by piano – all with the theme of spring. The first half of the concert is a set of unaccompanied choral pieces, including settings by Fissinger, Whitacre and Parker. The centerpiece is the lovely Robert Schumann’s Ziegeunerleben – or a gypsy’s life – which begins the final set accompanied by piano. Selections in the accompanied section include pieces by Barber, Copland and Hagenberg. The final composition is the lovely A Jubilant Song – a tour-de-force choral/piano piece by Norman Dello Joio. The concert features four compositions by female composers, and accompanied pieces are played by Cathy Venable, pianist.
