The image of the Phoenix rising out of the ashes comes originally from Egyptian mythology but was taken over by the early Christians as a symbol of the resurrection of Christ from the dead. From its opening bars, this work, with its unique combination of instruments and voices, succeeds in transporting both performers and listeners. Indeed, this transcendence to a "resurrection experience," the essence of this piece, is captured so vividly through the musical medium as the drama of the text unfolds.

The concert closes with several pieces that challenge our sense of belonging by offering various ideals on how to live one’s life, re-envisioning “home” not as a place or a group of people, but rather “home” as a state of mind.

This season, we are choosing to address a heartbreaking reality impacting a great number of youth in our city: homelessness. This problem of teens, youth and young adults making Seattle’s streets their only homes is growing at an alarming rate. We have a powerful story to tell through our music. We want our choristers, audiences and supporters to join us as we look at this population of vulnerable youth. With special guests, “The Pilgrims”, a men’s chorus dedicated to performances that benefit the plight of homeless youth, we will take an honest look at the problem and sing our hopes for a brighter future.

Thirty years ago, Margriet Tindemans founded the Medieval Women’s Choir on the premise that medieval music is as accessible as it is inspiring. She believed that any choral singer could learn to sing and to love this extraordinary repertoire and, through it, gain an appreciation and understanding of the culture that created it. Three decades on, Margriet’s choir, and her vision, continue to thrive. To celebrate our 30th season, we will revisit some of medieval repertoire most closely associated with the choir, as well as new pieces written for us over the years by Seattle composers Karen Thomas and Peter Seibert; by long-time MWC collaborator Shira Kammen; and by Margriet Tindemans herself.

(There will be a reception in the social hall after the concert to celebrate our 30th anniversary.)

Tickets: General $25, Seniors $20, Students $5, Child 6 to 10 free

Biographers gasp in wonder at Schubert’s productivity during the final year of his life. He completed the “Symphony No. 9 in C Major” (“The Great”) as well as the “C Major String Quintet,” one of the greatest chamber works ever composed. He penned six songs that wound up in the song cycle “Schwanengesang” (“Swan Song”), the three “Piano Pieces” and the last three piano sonatas.

Finally, Schubert completed his greatest choral work, the “Mass No. 6 in E-flat Major” and two related shorter anthems, the “Tantum ergo in E-Flat” and the “Offertory in B Flat,” all of which will comprise our concert program on March 14. The “Mass No. 6 in E Flat,” not performed until a year after his death, was his most ambitious work, employing his own subjective romantic feelings, and the influence of Mozart, Beethoven and Bach.

Concert will feature:
“Mass No. 6 in E-Flat, D. 950”
“Tantum ergo in E-Flat, D. 962”
“Offertory in B-Flat, ‘Intende voci,’ D. 963”

Benedict Sheehan (“rising star in Orthodox liturgical music”—Orthodox Arts Journal) returns to conduct a once-in-a-lifetime program featuring Cappella Romana with over 100 singers from the Pacific Youth Choir and basso profundo Glenn Miller. Tchaikovsky’s singular artistic voice in his Liturgy broke open the floodgates of creativity in Russian Orthodox choral music, including music for young singers. Grand and majestic sections of the Divine Liturgy beautifully contrast with its intimate moments of devotion and awe. Richly scored motets by Rachmaninoff, Chesnokov, and Sheehan himself amplify the legacy of Tchaikovsky’s monumental achievement.

Suspend any doubts you may have about classical choral “crossover”: Carol Barnett’s The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass is tremendously powerful music, doing justice to both its parental musical styles. Incorporating bluegrass instruments, Barnett adapts the ancient Mass text for a modern sensibility, dealing with issues of social conscience and building community.

As Barnett blends two musical worlds, so do the composers featured in the first half of the concert. Harry Burleigh and William Dawson were among the pioneers who transferred African-American spirituals into a choral guise, a tradition later carried by Moses Hogan. Kevin Siegfried dresses nineteenth-century American Shaker tunes in sumptuous modern harmonies. Writing in the mid-twentieth century, Frenchman Maurice Duruflé went back even further for inspiration: to medieval chant.

"In 1984 I was very fortunate to visit Uganda, where a dream maker made me a beautiful drum with a snakeskin head. I'll never forget sitting in the place to come home and seeing by chance the baggage handlers loading my drum with incredible respect and care. The drum to them is a living spirit.

The poems I set are a celebration of how that spirit is brought to life. The piece enacts the ritual of constructing the drum, whose component parts are drawn from the surrounding nature - a nature that gives of itself almost sacrificially. We hear how the goat is killed for its skin, how the tree, which bleeds cedar-dark when cut, bestows the drum's body, and how the sticks and rattles are taken, all to begin a new life as companions to the gods, music and the dance." Bob Chilcott

Saturday, May 2, 2020May 2, 2020, 7:30pm at Mt. Baker Theater, Bellingham, WA
Tickets: $22-35, select discounts available

Kulshan Chorus, Cantabile Chamber Choir, Kulshan Youth Choir, Sno-King Community Chorale, and orchestra join forces under the artistic direction of Dustin Willets to perform Carl Orff’s masterpiece cantata, Carmina Burana. Orff selected twenty-four poems from the medieval collection, Carmina Burana, covering a variety of familiar topics: the fickleness of fortune and wealth, the ephemeral nature of life, the joy of the return of Spring, and the pleasures and perils of drinking, gluttony, gambling, and lust. Together these poems and music describe activities along the great “wheel of life” or “wheel of fortune.” As the wheel spins, we may be uplifted in the world. But just as easily, the wheel of life may crush us. The moral is that no one of us is greater than any other, no matter their status. We should treat one another as equals, each struggling for purpose and meaning in the great wheel that is life. We belong to each other.

Saturday, May 16, 2020May 16, 2020, 8:00pm at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: $35-45; $28 for seniors/young adults; free for students

British composer Ethel Smyth’s Mass in D for choir, orchestra, and soloists is a monumental achievement. Written in the mid-19th century, it was dismissed by critics who deemed female composers unequal to their male counterparts. Seattle Pro Musica hails this stunning and seldom-heard piece as more than equal.

We pair this groundbreaking work with Mozart’s beloved “Great” Mass in C minor for one performance only in the magnificent acoustic of St. James Cathedral.

We learn from the creativity and imaginations of children. We watch children at play and wonder over their brilliant, inventive young minds. Music, both singing and movement, seem to flow without restraint from young children. As we close our season, we present “Flights of Fancy”, a concert that invites each of our choirs to be playful, light-hearted, imaginative set to performers sharing choral settings by some of the great composers of our day. We will sing of imaginary creatures like Lewis Carroll’s Jabberwocky and tell of barnyards that come to life at nighttime and swings that send a child flying and planes that spin heavenward close enough to touch the face of God. You will not want to miss this experience! And like Charlie in the Chocolate Factory may I invite you to “Come with me and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination!”

CANCELLED Concert: Across the Sea
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 2020, 7:30pm at Church of the Holy Cross, Redmond, WA
Sunday, June 7, 2020Jun 7, 2020, 3:00pm at Eastside Bahá'í Center, Bellevue, WA

Ever since the earliest days of human civilization, the ocean has captured the imagination. What is on the other side? And how can one possibly get there? Terra australis, a new work by local composer Bronwyn Edwards, our Composer-in-Residence this season, recalls those Europeans who first ventured to her native Australia, incorporating didgeridoo into the choir. Her Leonosa recounts an actual shipping vessel that took lumber from Washington to California in the 1840s. Another local composer, Michael Austin Miller, rejoices in the ancient explorers.

Of course, not all such exchanges were peaceful: Horizons, by the South African composer Peter Louis Van Dijk, movingly tells of native life that became slaughtered by European conquerors. Jaakko Mäntyjärvi’s Canticum calamitatis maritimae vividly depicts another tragedy: the sinking of the MS Estonia during a storm at sea in 1994. But rest assured that all is not dark. For example, Benjamin Britten extols St. Cecilia, the patron saint of music, who emerged from the sea. And with much lighter fare as well—particularly Across the sea from the Wailin’ Jennys—the joys of the ocean are always near.

CANCELLED Concert: Rachmaninoff's Divine Liturgy — A masterpiece of Russian sacred music
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 2020, 8:00pm at St. Mark's Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: General $25, Seniors $20, Students $5, Child 6 to 10 free

Sergei Rachmaninoff composed two major a cappella choral works—the “Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom” and the “All-Night Vigil”—that displayed his Orthodox faith in a manner that was innovative and fresh. In 1910 he turned to the sacred service of his church and with amazing speed composed the monumental “Divine Liturgy.” Afterward he said, “Not for a long time have I written anything with such pleasure."

Less well-known is Rachmaninoff’s early choral work, “Concerto for Choir,” written in 1893. It was both a culmination of a great tradition and a starting point for so much of what followed in Russia. Such “concertos” were popular in the eighteenth century as additions to the Orthodox divine service.

The “Three Sacred Hymns” from the Orthodox liturgy were composed in 1983 by Alfred Schnittke. The Russian conductor Valery Polyansky had requested an a cappella work for his choir, and though at first Schnittke seemed reluctant, he apparently woke in the middle of the night and wrote down these three pieces, and handed the manuscript to Polyansky the following day. The work was only published posthumously.

Featured works:
“Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Op. 31” by Sergei Rachmaninoff
“Concerto for Choir, The Grave and Death Could Not Hold the Mother of God” by Sergei Rachmaninoff
“Three Sacred Hymns” by Alfred Schnittke

CANCELLED Concert: A Sequestered World — Love, contemplation and ecstasy behind the cloister walls
Saturday, June 6, 2020Jun 6, 2020, 8:00pm at St. James Cathedral, Seattle, WA
Tickets: Advance:$25/Door:$30 /Students/youth:$15

Accustomed as we are to our bustling, secular lives, it can be difficult to imagine the richness of the world that developed behind the walls of the medieval cloister. Although they were under the absolute authority of the church, women there enjoyed an agency and self-direction that were hard to come by on the outside. Their most meaningful personal relationships and an often-profound spiritual renewal were tied to that community, and this autonomous life spawned religious practices and unique musical repertoires that are little-known today. Through their music, the MWC takes you behind the walls to experience the metaphysical landscape of the sequestered life.

Audition: Join us for our Virtual Season - No Audition Nec — Are you Craving a Choral Experience? Join us for a virtual season - NO AUDITION NECCESSARY

Because of this stubborn pandemic singing in a choir is not option. Luckily Allison Renn, Director of the Lake Washington Singers, has come up with a creative way to keep singing together. All women singers are welcome. No audition necessary.

Here is the plan:
We are putting together a mini online holiday concert with seven to ten choir songs.

We will use video software to create a virtual choir video to create a video concert.

We will release the concert on Facebook, YouTube and/or some other platform and ask for donations from our patrons.

The goal is to start August 1st and do one or two songs a month.

Safety concerns: Because of the virus we will not be able to have any face-to-face group rehearsals. All the practicing and most of the recording will be done at your own home.
Tech concerns: Don't be intimidated. Allison, and several other “Techno-savvy” singers are here to help.
Music: Allison is choosing songs for the concert that are mostly familiar and are not too complicated - 2 or 3 part harmony.
Rehearsing: You will need to learn the songs and practice your part on your own. We will have practice tracks, recordings of each part (Soprano, Alto, etc.) for each song, available to help you. We will also plan to have a few live online sectional rehearsals throughout the fall.
Cost: In order to pay for Allison and our accompanist, Keith Ruby, we are asking for a donation of $60 for the season. If you feel that you do not have the time to learn all the songs or only want to participate in a few of them then you have the option to choose only the ones you want to sing. Instead of paying for the whole season we are asking a minimum donation of $10 per song.

More details to follow: In the next few weeks, Allison will send out a list of the songs we’ll be singing and the dates she would like the songs recorded by. She will also send out detailed information on how to make those recordings.

We would love to have you join us for this creative season. Please let us know ASAP if you are interested. Please email (president@LakeWashingtonSingers.org) if you have any questions.
