“Chasing Your Winter Blues Away!” - Andrews University Singers and Chorale in Concert
Are you weary of winter? This Saturday evening in the Howard Performing Arts Center, the Andrews University Singers and Chorale under the direction of Stephen Zork have a remedy to brighten your mood, lighten your load, and chase your winter blues away. The evening concert begins with buoyant arrangements by Ward Swingle on J. S. Bach’s Bouréeand Jerome Kern’s All the Things You Are. Also featured are light-hearted madrigals such as Garrison Keillor’s Now Is the Time of Winter (inspired by Morley’s Now is the Month of Maying) the King’s Singers arrangement of Money Can’t Buy Me Love, and Pierre Passereau’s Il est Bel et Bon (He is Good and Handsome). And muse at the humor and wisdom found in Jester Hairston’s Gossip, Gossip, and Jacques Offenbach’s The Neighbors’ Chorus. A sublime and elegant centerpiece of the concert features four songs of love by British composers John Rutter, Bob Chilcott, and Charles Villiers Stanford; including Blow, Blow, Thou Winter Wind, The Blue Bird, I Got Me Flowers to Strew Thy Way, andMy True Love. The evening of eclectic musical offerings will conclude with a stirring setting of America, the Beautiful performed by the combined choirs.
