Choral Concert June 8, 2017 

Lachen Und Weinen (Laugh and Cry)

Join us for a special, choral concert featuring The Chamber Chorale and our Shoreline Singers on Thursday evening, June 8 at the First Lutheran Church of Richmond Beach. 

These wonderful vocal ensembles are excited to perform the concert, Lachen und Weinen (Laugh and Cry) because of its wonderfully accessible nature to the audience. It will be easy to connect with the many funny pieces, mostly English language, but also thoughtful and more tear inducing music of amazing composers from all over.

From the wonderfully witty Norman Luboff, we see selections from his Much A’do’s About Nothings. The poetry comes from many places of inspiration, including puns, cartoons, and yes even sign posts. Eric Whitacre is most known for his very serious biblical texts and beautiful cluster chords, but has also designed a collection of Ogden Nash poetry with hilariously “punny” endings titled Animal Crackers, sure to delight.

The combined choirs will also perform with the women singing Laudamus Te from Vivaldi’s Gloria, and the men singing the enormously popular text Sweet Rivers from the Northwest’s very own Reginald Unterseher. We will feature our wonderful accompanists at this concert, Anastasiya Timofeeva and Genevieve Peaslee. Extremely talented players, they will both play on their own, but also collaborate for an effective and wonderful rendition of Danse Africane, a William Averitt piece for 4 hand piano!

Please support our talented vocal students by attending this concert on June 8th at 7:30pm at First Lutheran Church of Richmond Beach. It should be a wonderful respite from the day to day.
