Members of the Northwest Chamber Chorus have been singing for a long time. Most of us started in choir when we were in high school or earlier, and now, we truly can’t “Keep from Singing”. We'd like to pass that torch on to the next generation. In this program we are joined by students from the Tacoma School of the Arts (SOTA). We will sing side-by-side with these young musical spirits, and we expect that they will teach us as much or more than we teach them. Our collaboration includes one performance at Phinney Ridge Lutheran and one at Tacoma’s Rialto Theatre, just one block from SOTA. Featured composers will include Giselle Wyers, Margaret King, Sarah Quartel, Volckmar Leisring, Jake Runestad, Pärt Uusberg, and Randall Thompson. You’ll hear music from Zimbabwe, Estonia, South Africa, Venezuela, the German Renaissance, and Washington state. Join us as we celebrate the progress and the talents of tomorrow’s singers.
