From the Americas to the Baltics - 2019 Spring Concert
Performances will be at SOU’s Music Recital Hall in Ashland on April 27 at 7:30 p.m. and April 28 at 3:00 p.m.
Join Siskiyou Singers and Director Mark Reppert for a celebration of music that captures the voices of the people, from the Americas (with influences from cultures the world over) to the Baltics (where Siskiyou Singers will tour this summer). We will perform Aaron Copland’s inspiring composition “The Promise of Living”; Gwyneth Walker’s arrangement of the Quaker hymn “How Can I Keep From Singing?”; “El Mambi,” a heartachingly beautiful Cuban ballad; the nostalgic Japanese folk song “Fuyugeshiki;” and the ethereal “Stars” by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds. We are also proud to present the world premiere of “Butterfly,” a work commissioned from local composer I’lana S. Cotton, honoring a courageous diplomat in 1940s Lithuania who saved thousands of Jews from the Nazis.
General admission is $20 ($5 for students and Oregon Trail Card holders). Tickets are also available at Music Coop or Paddington Station in Ashland and at Grocery Outlet in Medford.
NOTE: Musicologist Ed Wight will present a free pre-concert lecture one hour before each concert. Plus, this will be your last chance to enter the Siskiyou Singers 2019 Rhapsody Raffle, with many great prizes.
Please note: All seats are general admission. Tickets sold online will be held at Will Call.
