Tulsa Chorale will wrap its 2022-2023 concert season on April 28 with a concert titled “Sing in Spring!” The concert will begin at 7:30 pm at Holy Family Cathedral, 820 South Boulder Avenue in downtown Tulsa.
The performance 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 Edwin Fissinger, Eric Whitacre and Alice Parker. The second half, featuring accompanied pieces, includes works by Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland and Elaine Hagenberg. The final composition is 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
“What excites me most about our upcoming concert is that it showcases the incredible breadth of music throughout the twentieth century,” says Dr. Zachary Malavolti, Artistic Director and Conductor for Tulsa Chorale. “From the Neoclassical styles of Samuel Barber and Norman Dello Joio, to Neoromantic composers like Randall Thompson and Gwyneth Walker, to the folk song arrangements of Alice Parker and Aaron Copland, to the lush modern harmonies of Eric Whitacre and Elaine Hagenberg…the twentieth century is a feast of many brilliant forms of musical diversity! Come and enjoy!”
Tickets are available at the door or in advance via Eventbrite.
