The acclaimed Salt Lake Children’s Choir, Ralph B Woodward, Founder-Director, will present its annual Spring Concerts in the First Presbyterian Church. Tickets at Day Murray Music and at the door.
The program will include art songs of Mendelssohn, Brahms and Franz Schubert–followed by a Schubert Intermezzo for piano performed by brilliant young pianist and choir member, Caleb Spute. Also heard will be Zoltan Koday’s fiery setting of the Hungarian “Dancing Song,”and the choir’s a cappella arrangements of the rhythmic “Olha a Rosa Amarela” from Brazil, the Mexican favorite, “Cielito Lindo,” and “El Condor Pasa” from Peru. Of special interest will be the rich sonorities of “Zadrimali Volne” and “Blagoslvi dushe moya Ghospoda” by Russian masters, Cesar Cui and Pavel Chesnokov, and the evocative and powerful “How Excellent Thy Name” 20th Century American composition and music education icon, Howard Hanson.
The concert will conclude with the sentimental favorite, “Springtime in the Rockies,’ followed by the choir’s entertaining “Calypso Loco,”(in seven parts) and its traditional “A Day in Spring.”
Tickets available at Day Murray Music, from choir members and at the door. All seats are $10 ($6 students) and admission is open to all over age 6.
