trinity-v1-white2[7]Copland & Bernstein, a celebration!

This concert will feature the choral music of Aaron Copland, including the rarely heard complete Old American Songs for chorus and full orchestra. Also on the program is the music from Bernstein’s A Wonderful Town and selections from Candide.

The Boatmen’s Dance, The Dodger, and Simple Gifts are just a few of the Old American Songs, a set of ten songs transcribed by Irving Fine and loved by choral singers everywhere. They are rarely performed with the full orchestration traditionally used for the baritone solo version. Wonderful Town with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by the famed duo Comden and Green will be a lot of fun and a new venture for Cantilena – a move to Broadway!

Guest artists will be the Northern Berkshire Chorale

 

All seats: $30. Children free.
