“THE WAITING SKY” HOLIDAY CONCERT

December 18, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - December 19, 2021 @ 5:00 pm

$25

REPERTORY SINGERS TO PERFORM “THE WAITING SKY” HOLIDAY CONCERT ON DECEMBER 18TH AND 19TH

Southern Oregon Repertory Singers will return to live singing with “The Waiting Sky,” a program of seasonal music on Saturday, December 18th at 1:30 and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, December 19th at 3:00 p.m. at the SOU Music Recital Hall, 450 S. Mountain Avenue in Ashland.
“The program will feature beautiful music from the Renaissance to the present and includes music by both well
known and emerging composers,” says Music Director, Dr. Paul French.
Selected highlights of the concert include a lovely Renaissance motet by Tomás Luis de Victoria, a stunning “Ave Maria” by Polish composer Pawel Lukaszewski; a haunting setting of a Hebridean folksong, “The Christ Child’s Lullaby,” by American composer Gwyneth Walker for choir and mezzo soprano soloist; a beautiful piece that includes some fun visuals, “Winter,” by the young black American composer Alvin Trotman (who was featured in an interview this past Spring); music by two of Britain’s top composers: a delightful Spanish carol arrangement by Howard Goodall and a heartbreakingly lovely carol by Will Todd; a regal Magnificat by Charles Stanford, George Guest’s transporting arrangement of the Welsh carol “Suo Gan”; traditional secular carols “Jingle Bells,” “We wish you a Merry Christmas;” and a commissioned setting of the Scottish favorite “Auld Lang Syne” by Jodi French.
The concert title “The Waiting Sky” comes from a lovely a cappella piece by award-winning composer Oliver Tarney, who has been featured on several of our past holiday programs. “We have been waiting a long time to sing for you again and we hope our music brings you long overdue holiday cheer!” added Dr. French.
