We shall keep singing! Northwest Girlchoir 40th Anniversary Concert

Monday, June 17, 2013

The Northwest Girlchoir, which includes members from Shoreline and Lake Forest Park, will perform the final concert of its 40th Anniversary Season on Saturday, June 22 at Meany Hall Theatre, UW, 2pm.

The 250-member choir, as well as alumnae choristers from four decades, will be led by current Artistic Director Sara Boos and former Artistic Director Rebecca Rottsolk. The concert features a range of genres and time periods in an inspiring musical celebration of Northwest Girlchoir and of the joy of singing together.

The program includes a variety of folk songs; a piece from the musical Annie from the younger choir; and Valerie Shields' "Shehecheyanu," based on a traditional Hebrew prayer. Also featured are French art songs by Debussy, sacred music, and the majestic "Psalm 8" by Dan Forrest (with violin and djembe accompaniment). The highlight of the performance is the world premiere of Andrea Ramsey's "This Indeed Is Music," commissioned by Northwest Girlchoir to celebrate its 40th Anniversary.
