20th Century French Choral Masterworks



Saturday, November 15th
First Presbyterian Church
General admission is $15.00
Student tickets are $12

Bloomington Chamber Singers, an auditioned choir of community members and students, will perform a unique concert of twentieth-century French choral music at First Presbyterian Church in Bloomington on November 15. Gerald Sousa, now in his 26th year as Artistic Director of the Chamber Singers, will conduct the fifty-voice choral ensemble, soloists, and instrumental accompanists.

The program of works by French masters Ravel, Poulenc, Faure, and Martin will delight and surprise the audience. From somber tales of lost lovers to witty, fast-paced chansons about nymphs and sprites, the Bloomington Chamber Singers’ fall concert will be an inspiring set of engaging music.

Coming on the heels of a boom in artistic freedom in Europe, French composers of the first half of the twentieth century explored new types of voicings, new topics, and unusual harmonies to create some of the most enjoyable works of the choral canon. Audiences will appreciate the fundamentally tonal and accessible melodies overlayed by creatively striking harmonic arrangements. Performed by the always engaging Bloomington Chamber Singers, which sold out both performances of its spring 2014 concert of Annelies by James Whitbourn, the November concert is sure to be a satisfying adventure for all who take part in it.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance from choir members or through the BCT Box Office, 114 E. Kirkwood Ave. (www.buskirkchumley.org, 812-323-3020)
