May 21, 2017 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM

Elsinore Theatre | 170 High St SE, Salem OR

We’ll be presenting beautiful compositions for men’s and women’s choirs, exploring rich repertoire we haven’t had the chance to explore in FCO.

Accompanied by grand piano, solo instruments, and occasionally a cappella, our women will perform, among other selections, “Nigra Sum” by Pablo Casals, “Tyrley,Tyrlow” by Gustav Holst, and “Aure volanti” by Renaissance composer Francesca Caccini. The tenors and basses will sing a variety of pieces, anchored by the rarely performed “Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard” by Benjamin Britten, whose text is a medieval account of betrayal, intrigue, and murder The choir will conclude by performing together, just to prove it can!
