 2021/2022 Concert Season

In Person Concert May22, 2022

On behalf of all of us at Northwest Choral Society, it’s my pleasure to announce our 2022 Spring Concert!  This program – the first I’ve had the pleasure of putting together since becoming Artistic Director – is centered around the idea of “Home” – what it means, the various forms it can take, and how our perception of places, feelings, and ideas can change over time.

The centerpiece of the concert is John Corigliano’s modern masterwork, Fern Hill, music set to poetry of Dylan Thomas.  Fern Hill is scored by the composer either for string ensemble with piano, or for piano alone, and for our performance the solo piano score is in the very good hands of Laurie Mackie, our Collaborative Pianist whose sensitivity and skills as a collaborative pianist are on full display throughout the 20+ minute work.

The second half of the concert consists of shorter, single unaccompanied choral works, each looking at the idea of ‘home’ from a different perspective.
