In the Words of Shakespeare
Mar 18, 2017
SINGERS Chamber Choir will perform a special concert, "In the Words of Shakespeare," celebrating the immortal words of William Shakespeare on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 9200 W. 10th Ave. in Lakewood at 8:00. Artistic director Norm Te Slaa will conduct the chamber choir in 20th and 21st century settings of the Bard's texts, including compositions by Ralph Vaughan Williams, Rene Clausen, Jaako Mantyjaarvi, William Mathias and Frank Martin. The words come from a variety of Shakespeare's works: an excerpt from William Walton's film score to "Henry V" rubs shoulders with Emma Lou Diemer's sensuous reading of a passage from "Measure for Measure." John Rutter's version of "Blow, Blow thou Winter Wind" ("As You Like It) appears alongside sonnet settings by Ruth Morris Gray and Nils Lindberg. Shakespeare wrote his plays for a wide-ranging audience, and we believe that listeners of all kinds will enjoy this intriguing program. So brush up your Shakespeare and come hear SINGERS' tribute to the bard on March 18! Concert admission is $15 adults, $12 students and seniors. Tickets are available at the door or on our website at www.SINGERSChamberChoir.com/season.html. Free parking is available across the street from the church For more information call 303.980.9184.
