GSCC Member Event
It is said that music began with movement. This concert explores the various ways in which dance has been embraced by choral music. Brahms’ Liebeslieder, or “Love-Song,” waltzes are perennial favorites. Dance was all the rage during Bach’s time, and the most dancelike of his motets is surely Der Geist hilft. Tangos of Piazzolla have also been arranged for chorus. For a bit of Americana, we’ll round it all out with Copland’s country-dance Stomp your foot and Ives’s Circus Band.
