Chamber Singers present ‘A Garland of Hope’
April 12, 2012
The Guilford College Chamber Singers and Piedmont Chamber Singers present A Garland of Hope at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 15, in Dana Auditorium. Admission is free for the Guilford community.
This collaborative performance features choral masterworks by Johann Sebastian Bach and Benjamin Britten. Bach’s Ich hatte viel Bekümmernis, BWV 21, will be followed by Britten’s Cantata Misericordium, Opus 69, composed by the pacifist composer for the commemoration of the centennial of the Red Cross. This poignant and cathartic program will leave you with a sense of hopeful optimism.
Performances will be under the direction of co-founder and former artistic director Donald Armitage. In addition to the Dana Auditorium performance, the program will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, in Ardmore Baptist Church in Winston-Salem.
Piedmont Chamber Singers artistic director WENDY LOOKER spoke about the program with David Ford , host of Triad Arts Up Close.
