Connecticut Master Chorale
To Hope! A Celebration by Dave Brubeck; I'm Gonna Sing! by André Thomas
Tina Johns Heidrich. Conductor
"To Hope! A Celebration" by Dave Brubeck is an exciting work of grand proportion and a monumental affirmation of hope and exultation. Composed in 1979, it is powerful, multi-faceted, and displays his superb choral writing ability with profoundly moving passages, dance-like rhythms, deep emotion, and a strong sense of optimism.
Our concert will open with "Im Gonna Sing!",a collection of spirituals from the master of spiritual writing. Dr. Thomas is a distinguished conductor, composer and arranger who is especially well known for his wonderful arrangements of traditional spirituals. This collection includes I'm Gonna Sing, Deep River, Swing Down Chariot, Keep Your Lamps, and more!
Accompanied by the CT Master Chorale Orchestra and joined by Mezzo-Soprano Wendy Gerbier and Tenor Marques Hollie.
