Join us on a magic ride, from the primal spells and incantations of "Urok" by Lojze Lebič, to Claude Debussy’s delightful salute to spring, “Salut Printemps”. Slovenian repertoire from our recent European tour is also featured alongside a special American section which includes settings of e.e. cummings' poetry in Vincent Persichetti's Spring Cantata and Kirstina Rasmussen’s “in time of daffodils”. We are thrilled to present the world premiere of Ripple by Ted Hearne, commissioned in honor of our 45th anniversary. For our press release about this exciting new work, visit http://www.chorusamerica.org/news/california-chorus-heralds-its-45th-ann....
