Directed by Bryan Kettlewell
Inspired by welcoming his first child into the world, Bryan Kettlewell has created a concert program centered around the themes of children and home. Kettlewell writes, “We are fortunate to live in such a wonderful place, and, as most of us do, I truly call this city my home.”
Selections include lullabies as well as songs that explore the meaning of what we call home by composers Pavel Chesnokov, Josef Rheinberger, Moses Hogan, Eric Whitacre and Shawn Kirchner.
We know you will be inspired by this program of outstanding choral selections and Laudamus Chamber Chorale’s beautiful singing. We look forward to seeing you in November!
Many thanks to our audience members, sponsors and donors who make our concerts possible. Concert ticket sales make up a relatively small portion (between 25-30%) of our annual budget so your donations make a huge difference to us. We thank you for your generosity. As donors and patrons, you are part of the Laudamus Chamber Chorale family and it is a privilege to share the joy and passion of the choral art with you. We are looking forward to preparations for our upcoming 2019-2020 season. It will be exciting for the chorale to be able to work with two conductors, one for each set of concerts, as I will be on sabbatical studying, preparing scores, and teaching this coming year.
It will be a privation for me not to see our choir members each week, so I want to (shamelessly!) tell you that it is the greatest joy to be able to work with the wonderful singers of Laudamus Chamber Chorale. Truly, we have the most amazing gathering of talent, intellect, training and skill! I love these singers and think the world of them.
Laudamus Chamber Chorale dedicates itself to performing great works of choral literature, commissioning and singing new works by contemporary composers and providing an avenue for meaningful performances for its singers. We look forward to seeing you at our next concert!
