Choral Arts Concert in Laurelhurst This Friday

If you’ve never experienced Choral Arts, head to St. Stephen’s in Laurelhurst at 7pm this Friday. The power of beautiful voices can and will transport you to your own personal “happy place”, and don’t we all need that right now? Small arts organizations such as these really are the heart and soul of our community, and just like us they’re struggling. These folks are a group of passionate volunteers who are dedicated to creating pure sound.

Read the book This is Your Brain on Music by Daniel Levitin? Stimulating your brain is a good thing. Go for it!

The details:

Choral Arts “Pierced to the Heart: Fathers, Sons, Mothers, Daughters”
Compelling music and texts explore the relationships of parents to their children. The program’s centerpiece is the premiere of John David Earnest’s My Papa’s Waltz and a complete performance of Carissimi’s moving oratorio Jephte. Other pieces include Motherless Child by Craig Hella Johnson, Josquin’s Stabat Mater, and When David Heard by Eric Whitacre.
