This will be another fun collaboration between Cor Cantiamo and two High School Choirs. This time we’ll be working with the students of the Oak Lawn Community High School and the Alan B. Shepard High School Choirs, in Oak Lawn, Illinois. And this time, we’ll also have a professional chamber ensemble playing for us.
Cor Cantiamo established this educational outreach program to introduce aspiring High School Singers to choral & orchestral masterworks in a professional setting.
During the project the High School Choir has the opportunity to rehearse and perform side by side with the professional singers of Cor Cantiamo. During the rehearsal process members of Cor Cantiamo provide individualized mentoring of the high school students, regarding all matters ranging from rehearsal etiquette to life as a professional singer. The final outcome of the project is a performance of a great choral work presented by the combined forces of Cor Cantiamo and the High School choir.
At this Masterworks concert, we’ll be performing “The Seven Heavens” by British composer, James Whitbourn. This multi-movement work is scored for chamber choir and seven instrumentalists and portrays the life of C. S. Lewis in the imagery of the medieval planets.
We will also perform some of our previous Catalyst repertoire, including songs by Brahms and Part, and two movements from Ted Hearne’s “Privilege”.
