Concert: Behind the Veil — The Hidden Talents of the Medieval Women's Choir
Friday, December 25, 2020Dec 25, 2020, 12:00pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: $12.00 per family.

(THIS CONCERT IS AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE MONTH OF DECEMBER ANY TIME OF DAY (so you may overlook the only date of Christmas day pasted in above).

In our first-ever online performance, members of the choir showcase their “hidden” talents for our audience.

Like many musical organizations, our members have numerous talents and accomplishments that generally remain unknown to our audience at large. They are writers, artists, instrumentalists, singers and scholars, and they enrich our community in any number of ways beyond their appearances with the choir. Since the pandemic keeps us from meeting in person with you, and with each other, we thought this would be a good time to step out from behind the veil, and display some of the secret talents of our members. This exclusive online presentation features excerpts from literary works and performances of music from medieval to McCartney, hosted by Artistic Director Eric Mentzel.
Contributing artists include Mary Lynne Evans, Sophia Smith, Dinnen Cleary, Bill McJohn, Ellen Seibert, Candace Robb, Basha Osinski, Alice K. Boatwright, Wendy Joseph, Erika Chang, Mary Ann Hagan, Marian Seibert, Sally Mitchell, and Michael LaGaly, all supported by videographer Ailisa Newhall, sound engineer Kevin Wyatt-Stone, and produced by the MWC’s Artistic Director, Eric Mentzel.

Tickets: Free

Because we can't carol in person this 2020 holiday season, Bellevue Chamber Chorus members are teaming up for a fun collaboration featuring festive December artwork by children from both Bellevue and our larger familial circles to create an online recording of “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire.” This classic 1945 tune (also known as "The Christmas Song") from Robert Wells and Mel Tormé was popularized by Nat King Cole, and the clever and fun choral arrangement by Roy Ringwald is full of classic holiday cheer and childhood mystery, sure to bring a smile! Featuring our magnificent accompanist Kristine Anderson in full 40's pianistic style! Join us for the premiere party on our official YouTube channel or Facebook page at 7:30 pm on Tuesday 12/22.

Bellevue Chamber Chorus presents “Wanting Memories,” from acclaimed composer Ysaye Barnwell of Sweet Honey in the Rock, a treble a cappella ensemble of African American women active since the 1970s. A piece heralding today’s "a cappella” style, with a strong melody and vocal mimicry of instruments, it also has a beautiful journey to take the listener on, as illustrated in our virtual recording that will premiere on YouTube and Facebook. We are grateful for the music and life of Ysaye Barnwell and we look forward to sharing this upcoming release during Black History Month.

Concert: Blessing Our World In Song — Virtual Concert
Saturday, March 6, 2021Mar 6, 2021, 12:00pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: $35

ANNOUNCING OUR VIRTUAL CONCERT, SATURDAY MARCH 6th

In this long season with the Covid Pandemic, the Seattle Children's Chorus, like many arts organizations worldwide, has sought creative ways to keep our music alive and to keep spreading that joy with our audiences! Our next Virtual Performance "Blessing Our World In Song" will be just that!

This Virtual Performance will feature an extraordinary Massed Choir Video of our choristers and alumni performing the treasured blessing we have sung for our audiences for nearly 30 years. It has always been a very holy and personal moment of connection as our choirs surround our audiences and together deliver John Rutter's "The Lord Bless You and Keep". It is one of those "not a dry eye" concert moments. We have deeply missed blessing you in song for the past 12 months. On March 6th, SCC will come to your screen as a large singing community of youth and alumni. Have a hanky ready.

The virtual concert will also include a delightful recital of vocal soloists from among our present choristers who have been faithfully developing their vocal skills by zoom sessions throughout our quarantine. We are also pleased to be welcoming some very special guests to this concert. Our vocalists will deliver wonderful literature for solo voice: art songs, folk songs, gospel, musical theatre and more.

Please join us for this special event.

Bach, Pärt, and others, along with a new arrangement by our Artistic Director, Daniel Mahraun.

Special Performance: Lux Aeterna - Ēriks Ešenvalds
Tuesday, April 13, 2021Apr 13, 2021, 7:30pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: Free-will offering only

Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds is one of today’s most popular names in choral music. His simple setting of Lux Aeterna (“Light Eternal”) employs beautiful chant-like melodies that complement the ancient text and crystalline transparent textures that seem to imply light streaming through a stained-glass window. Bellevue Chamber Chorus offers this piece in memory of all those that have passed during COVID-19 in hopes that we all find a path toward light and peace.

Bellevue Chamber Chorus delves again into animated storytelling with Canadian composer Imant Raminsh’s mysterious and evocative setting of a Pablo Neruda poem, “The Stolen Branch.” In the Night We Shall Go In, set for SATB chorus, cello and piano, is alternately lyrical and romantic, frigid and austere, depicting the awakening of a winter garden, the starry sky, and the pair who leave their safe space to experience it. Eli Weinberger joins us again on cello, along with Kristine Anderson on piano.

Concert: L'Histoire d'Ys, A Virtual Legend — The Story of Y's
Saturday, June 5, 2021Jun 5, 2021, 7:00pm at Online Event (Link in description)
Tickets: $12 per family

An online event taken from a concert performed by the Medieval Women's Choir and narrated by artistic director Eric Mentzel . From Plato’s description of Atlantis to Lerner and Loewe’s portrayal of Brigadoon, the idea of the lost city has captured the human imagination across millennia. One of the most compelling is the story of Ys, a city built in the early middle ages behind sturdy dykes and sea walls on the coast of Brittany. It quickly became a center of sin and debauchery and was eventually, in an act of divine retribution, reclaimed by the sea. For this production, we use archival recordings from our musical telling of the “Histoire d’Ys,” combined with a newly created narrative and a rich tapestry of images both ancient and modern to bring this medieval legend to life.

We look forward to gathering as a community as soon as it's safe again.

Josef Rheinberger is better known in the choral world for his a cappella motets, however, this beautiful piece titled Lockung, with piano accompaniment (performed by Kristine Anderson), is a rare gem in his output. It begins both strophes with a question: can't you hear the songs of the natural world all around us? Do you remember them as they call to you to dream? This piece, sung in German, invites us to revel in romantic fancies alongside the beauty of the natural world. Happy Summer!
