As the world confronts challenges to health and the arts, the Cascadian Chorale celebrates music that interweaves different American cultures, past and present. Kevin Siegfried's sonorous adaptations of Shaker songs stand aside historic arrangements of spirituals by Harry Burleigh, William Dawson, and Moses Hogan. Carol Barnett's "The World Beloved" reimagines the Catholic Mass with a sacred-and-secular perspective. Infused with bluegrass culture and sonorities, its central message of togetherness and mutual support is especially appropriate in these days.
