Old American Songs

POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID-19 CONCERNS

Vashon Center for the Arts

The nineteenth century was a prolific time for American songwriting. Choral composers ever since have been entranced by a cornucopia of folksongs, Shaker and revivalist hymns, African-American spirituals, and children’s songs. Selections from Aaron Copland’s Old American Songsjoin works by Northwest composers Morten Lauridsen, Tim Drewes, and the Chorale’s own Marc Fitchette. Another highlight is the cycle At the Water’s Edge by Kevin Siegfried with texts by American poet Sarah Orne Jewett. Join the Vashon Island Chorale for a lively evening of Americana.
