San Jose Choral Project Concerts in May
- Choral Concert: "The Heart is the Compass"
What: The central theme of this concert program revolves around our
humanity, our spirituality, our musical journey through the last century and
a glimpse what the 21st-century has to offer us. Selections will include
works by Stanford, Vaughan Williams, Carl Nielsen, Mechem and the stunningly
virtuosic "Magnificat" of Giles Swayne. At the center of the program will be
Zoltan Kodaly's rarely heard "Pange lingua,"as well as world premieres by
Brent Heisinger, Theodore Lucas and Neil Ginsberg.
Who: The San Jose Choral Project is a non-profit organization founded in
1996 by Artistic Director Daniel Hughes. In its fifth season the San Jose
Choral Project seeks to expand the choral art by striving for excellence in
high-level choral literature and by bridging the gap between text and music,
singer and spectator.
Why: In an age where technology rules so much of our lives, it is more
important than ever to reconnect to our community and to our spirit.
When: 8 PM Friday and Saturday, May 18th and 19th.
