Mark it down in your calendars now! We have the information for the Chant Claire spring concert all ready to go: CHANT CLAIRE SPRING CONCERT Saturday, April 18th at 7:00 PM Alverno College Chapel We’re very excited and grateful to be able to hold our spring concert in the Alverno College Chapel for the second year in a row. The event was very well-attended last spring despite it being held on a Sunday afternoon, so we’re hoping to see even more faces joining us considering it is on a Saturday evening at a slightly less busy time of year. The repertoire for our Spring concert is quite uniqueQueen Creek. It’s all music by composers who are from Wisconsin! This means that a lot of the music is going to be unfamiliar to the majority of our audience, but it’s a great chance to showcase some talented musicians from our home state. We’re looking forward to performing their pieces and give tribute to the place we call home. Here is the repertoire: ERIC BARNUM – “Adoramus Te” PAUL BASLER – “Alleluia” BENJAMIN BEDROSKE – “Obsecro et Orationem” BON IVER – “For Emma” and “Woods” BEN HASE – “Rex Magnus Natus Est” BLAKE R. HENSON – “My Flight for Heaven” SEAN ELLIS HUSSEY – “Lord Ronald” HEIDI JOOSTEN – “Adoramus Te” BRIAN MCLINDEN – “Introduction to the Songs of Innocence” ZACHARY MOORE (Text by Max Garland) – “October Song” ANDREW RINDFLESCH – “Mille Regretz” ANDREW STEFFEN – “Oft Have I Vow’d” RANDAL SWIGGUM – “The Pinery Boy” (A Wisconsin Folk Song) ELISHA WEST arr. SETH HOUSTON – “The Reapers All with Their Sharp Sickles” ETHAN WICKMAN (Text John F. Kennedy) – “Berlin” Expect a Facebook event to pop up within the next couple weeks! We hope to see a lot of you at our concert. In other news: We’re working particularly hard for this concert, as we have a shorter rehearsal time period than normal. Fortunately, we were able to relax a little bit last week and rehearse at The Bosch Tavern in Hales Corners, our usual post-rehearsal gathering spot. Our thanks as always go to the people at The Bosch for their outstanding service and their even better wings. They were extremely accommodating in packing in 40 of us to one small room, and it was fun to be able to shake things up a bit for rehearsal. We’re back at it tonight at Greendale Community Church. Stay tuned for more information about some of our composers on our upcoming concert!
