FALL CHORAL SHOWCASE FEATURES AMERICANA
On Saturday, October 14 at 7:30pm, the Battle Creek Community Chorus will combine with the Battle Creek Boychoir and Girls Chorus to present a Fall Showcase Concert at First Presbyterian Church.
The Community Chorus, directed by Clayton Parr, will present works by American composers that feature text by Walt Whitman and Robert Frost -- Howard Hanson's Song of Democracy and Randall Thompson's Frostiana. "It's been a joy to go back to these iconic texts," says Parr. "Whitman's text about the importance of public school education in protecting our democracy are as relevant as ever." The group is accompanied by pianist Sara Cleland.
Members of the Boychoir and Girls Chorus will join the Community Chorus in Thompson's setting of the famous Robert Frost poem "The Road Not Taken." Tickets are $10 ($5 for students) and are available in advance by calling 269-963-1911, online, or at the door.
