In seven short years Maestro Dennis Houser and the most talented singers of the local area have amassed a reputation of excellence in programming and performance seldom heard from the nation’s concert stages. You won’t want to miss a single moment of this exciting season.
The Oct. performance introduces a work by local composer, Henry Flurry, titled Fragments. Flurry has chosen texts from the Dead Sea Scrolls from which to vocalize a wide range of emotions from awe to humility. In addition, you will hear two works by contemporary composer, Ola Gjeilo. The lyrics of both Dreamweaver and Song of the Universal reflect on the concert theme, Dreams of Eternity.
Continuing a long-standing tradition, the Chorale’s Dec. concert will consist of two different programs, one aimed at the young and the young at heart and one for the more traditional audience. Expect to see a guest appearance by the Children’s Choir and maybe a visit from St. Nick himself.
The April concert puts on display the lesser-known talents of Giacomo Puccini in the Chorale’s performance of his Messa a Quattro Voci. In this first-time performance in the Prescott area, you will hear the dramatic and lyrical vocals that characterize his more famous operatic scores.
