Let Music Fill the Air

Santa Clarita Master Chorale presents songs about singing at PAC

The Santa Clarita Master Chorale and the Santa Clarita Children’s Honor Choir perform at the PAC on June 3.

 

From an exquisitely tender German evening song to a stormy Brazilian psalm, the Santa Clarita Master Chorale has everything you want in a summer concert this year. "Let Music Fill the Air" is the theme and the chorale will be presenting a whole program of songs about singing on Sunday, June 3 at 3:30 p.m. at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons.

The Chorale will be offering a vocalise by Rachmaninoff, a "Laughing Song" by David Dickau complete with "ha-ha's" in the lyrics, and that clap-your-hands favorite from Sweet Charity called "Rhythm of Life."

Just when you thought no one could impress you with another version of "Danny Boy," along comes Fresno-born composer Kevin Memley, who writes his rendition for just the men of the chorale. The dramatic vocal rhythmics will have your heart swelling all over again to this tender song.

The Santa Clarita Children's Honor Choir will be rejoining the chorale for the featured work of the concert, "Mass of the Children" by Englishman John Rutter, a chorale favorite. Under the direction of Jennifer Brown, this group of young singers just keeps getting better. Come and celebrate the next generation of choristers as they and the chorale sing Rutter's music and the poetry of William Blake and Bishop Thomas Ken.

The Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons is located at 26455 Rockwell Canyon Road, Santa Clarita, CA 91355. For more information or tickets, go to www.scmasterchorale.org or call (661) 362-5304.
