Guest appearance for Classical Movements
Due to forecasted severe weather on June 3rd, the performances have been rescheduled and will take place on June 4, 2021.
Some of the most stunning choral music of all time is written by American composers. Music that moves the soul by melding the melodies and stories of our past with lyrics and harmonies that bring us into the present, allowing the future of choral music to resonate with the rhythm and timbre of our world.
These performances include a world premiere by B. E. Boykin celebrating Mary Church Terrell, an activist in the movements for civil rights and women’s suffrage, commissioned by Classical Movements.
In these performances, artistic director Scott Tucker assembles members of the Choral Arts Chamber Singers for what will be an emotional experience as the ensemble shares their first live performances since 2019.
