The Clark College Women’s Choral Ensemble and the Clark College Chorale perform their final concert of the season at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 15, in the Gaiser Student Center on the Clark College campus. Admission is free.
The Women’s Choral Ensemble will perform choral pieces containing the vivid and meaningful words of such poets as Rainer Maria Rilke, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Sara Teasdale. “The Rising,” by Andrea Ramsey, conveys the message of changing our sorrows into song, while the upbeat “Yo Le Canto Todo el Dia” uses an intricate piano accompaniment and body percussion to deliver a different emotion.
The Clark College Chorale will perform an equally diverse program, including a setting of the famous Lewis Carrol poem “Jabberwocky.” Choral pieces from Mozart, Vaughan Williams, and Randall Thompson are featured, along with a moving setting of “The Peace of Wild Things” by Jake Runestad.
