WE HAVE HAD SINGING!: 2014-2015 SEASON
WE HAVE HAD SINGING!
For twenty years, Schola Singers have gathered on Monday nights around their shared love of choral music, and around the meaningful experience of fine ensemble singing.
Over the years it seems to have become even more than that.
Together, Schola Artists have ‘processed’ life’s joys and tragedies, transitions of birth and death and everything in between – all through music. Hurricane Sandy had to impact the concert that was a mere three weeks later. 9/11/2001 and its ten-year anniversary were both expressed from the depths of all our aching hearts the way we knew – in musical utterance. When multiple family deaths came to the Schola Family in a short period, the powerful Tse Go La by Andrea Clearfield was there to see us through.
Singing and Life have become one in the same increasingly over the years; and our life in 21st-century America is increasingly reflected in new music, and heavily (though not at all exclusively) that of American composers. The message of Unity and Universal Love weaves through each annual theme in some way each year…
…and in this concert culminating and celebrating our 20 seasons as Schola Cantorum on Hudson*, the Schola Family of Singing Artists has selected some of its favorites. “We Have (indeed!) Had Singing” – and so we shall into our next decade and the next, and the next, for that is how we live.
Several Singer favorites to be included in “We Have Had Singing” are:
Ivo Antognini’s “Life is a Circle”
Elliot Levine’s “i thank you God”
Eric Whitacre’s “Lux Aurumque”
Roger Wesby’s arrangement of Sting’s “Fields of Gold”
Morten Lauridsen’s “Sure On This Shining Night”
This is a concert not to be missed, for it is the direct product of all our hearts.
*’Schola Cantorum’ (literally: ‘school of singers’) was the name given to the very earliest group of trained singers, in the middle ages. ‘On Hudson’ is meant to refer to ‘an expansive waterway to the world.’ Hence, the name “Schola Cantorum on Hudson:” embracing the future, standing on the historical shoulders of giants.
