JACKSON, Wyo. — Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir and the Jackson Hole Symphony Orchestra are pleased to announce a joint performance of stunning cultural sounds, 4:00 pm on Sunday, May 15th at the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole on South Park Loop Road. The concert is free. Attend in person or watch the livestream at cathedralvoices.org.
The Cathedral Voices Chamber Choir will perform music by contemporary composers Ola Gjeilo, Shawn Kirchner, and Michael McGlynn. Music intertwines with modern poetry and timeless Scottish and Irish texts that explore the hope, the longing, and the love that makes the human experience what it is – complex and beautiful.
Combined with the rich orchestral sounds of composers Edward MacDowell and William Grant Still, and with guest musician Gael Shults on hammered dulcimer and bodhrán drum, “SongRise” is an experience for the ears. “The sounds of live music are rising again, after two years of struggle and heartache worldwide,” commented Laura Huckin, Artistic Director. “This year is a dayspring for all of us – we are all grappling with how life continues beyond the Pandemic. Art and music are key resources which help us reflect upon our experiences and embrace life.”
Vocalists from neighboring communities in Pinedale and Star Valley, as well as musicians from Victor and Driggs, Idaho are joining the choir and orchestra for this performance. “We all felt the need to come together and share in this musical moment.” Concert begins at 4:00pm in the Presbyterian Church of Jackson Hole. Donations appreciated.
Supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole, and many local Community Sponsors.
