Clouds of Dreams : 100 years of American choral music
includes Leonard Bernstein Clarinet Sonata (soloist: Einar Jˇhannesson)

Saturday, 15 June 2019, 18:00
St Paul's, Southfields, Augustus Road, Southfields, London SW19 6EW

* Please note the start time for this concert is 6pm *
 
An evening of great choral music that either originated from or has come out of the USA, although not all the composers are American.   Ola Gjeilo, for example, was born in Norway but has resided in the USA since 2001.   And while WCS is into new commissions at the moment (see our previous concert), even our rehearsal accompanist, Michael Higgins, has got in on the act with his new Appalachian Songs.  Our special guest for the evening will be Icelandic clarinettist, Einar Jóhannesson (right).
 
The planned programme is:
 
Aaron Copland
arr. Michael Higgins

Ching A Ring Chaw
Three Appalachian Folksongs

Leonard Bernstein

Clarinet Sonata

Ola Gjeilo
Libby Larsen
Jake Runestad
Morten Lauridsen
Eric Whitacre

Ubi Caritas
Beneath these alien stars
Let my love be heard
Sure on this shining night
Sleep

George Gershwin
(arr. Higgins/Jóhannesson)

Three Preludes


Ola Gjeilo
Andrea Ramsey
arr. Moses Hogan
Evening Prayer
Doors of daring
Hold on
