Chamber Singers to Perform “East West Harmonies”
May 27 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
East meets West on May 27 and 28 in a joyful celebration of song! The Chamber Singers of Southeast Iowa will give two performances of “East West Harmonies,” their spring concert, on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend at 7:30 p.m. in the Golden Magnolia Sanctuary at 200 S. Main Street in Fairfield, just a short block from the town square.
This year’s concert program features new arrangements of popular traditional songs from Malaysia, Taiwan, and Thailand, along with masterworks by Brahms and Mendelssohn and beautiful modern compositions set to timeless love poems. The pieces celebrate the healing power of love, singing, nature, and the unity of life, creating waves of inspiration and upliftment of the heart in resonance with the blossoming of spring.
“Our program this year ranges across the globe,” says Elaine Reding, musical director of the Chamber Singers. “Together, these songs represent a meeting of cultures on the universal ground of love and celebration of life. Each one contributes a specific flavor to the mix, from quiet devotion to exuberant joy. We can’t wait to share this concert with everyone!”
A superb guest instrumental trio, featuring piano, flute, and viola da gamba, will provide instrumental interludes to complement the choral works.
The Chamber Singers warmly invite everyone to join them on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28, at 7:30 p.m. for their spring concert at the Golden Magnolia Sanctuary. Tickets are $10 at the door.
