Product Details

Tickets will also be on sale at the door.

Join Siskiyou Singers as we visit the concept of beauty through the words of Emily Dickinson and four of her poems on that theme. Each section of our concerts — Heaven, Nature, Spirit, and Infinity — will open with a corresponding Dickinson poem, set to music by the brilliant American composer Alice Parker.

Performances will be at SOU’s Music Recital Hall in Ashland at 7:30 pm Saturday, May 4, and 3 pm Sunday, May 5. General admission is $25 ($5 for students and Oregon Trail Card holders). Tickets are available from choir members; at Music Coop or Paddington Station in Ashland; and online here.

These performances will serve as a preview of our choir’s concert tour of Italy this June. Among the pieces we will be sharing with audiences here and in Europe: Aaron Copland’s ethereal setting of “At the River”; “Nootka Paddle Song,” based on a welcoming chant by the indigenous people of British Columbia; Joshua Shank’s euphoric “The Boy Who Picked Up His Feet to Fly”; and “The Pasture,” adapted from the poetry of Robert Frost.
