Description

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.
