We sing our first concert of the season, TIME AFTER TIME, 7:30 pm, Saturday, October 20, 2018 at Providence Presbyterian Church (9019 Little River Turnpike, Fairfax, VA).
As always, we will be sharing the stage with guest musicians. This time it is our pleasure to welcome the Robinson Secondary School Advanced Treble Chorus.
Tickets are available now through choir members or online.
Time After Timeoffers glimpses of the entire arc of life, embracing sweet and bittersweet, chaos and quiet, the events we anticipate and those we don’t. From Eric Whitacre’s interpretation of the children’s classic Goodnight Moon, to Jonathan Larson’s Seasons Of Love to Doyle Lawson’s arrangement of the old folk song Calling My Children Home, the music evokes the quiet of lullabies, the joyful exuberance of youth, the ringing quiet of the empty nest, and the serenity of lives fully lived.
The inspiration for this concert was Eric Nelson’s affirming arrangement of When Memory Fades, a beautiful piece on memory and sound. Of all our higher senses, hearing develops earliest. We listen in the womb. We retain lullabies all our lives. We understand the babble of babies through cadence as much as the expression on their faces. As life gets busier, we can’t remember why we walked into a room, but we can remember the words to a song we loved in our youth. Sound is what we start with before we take our first breath. Music is what stays with us, all our lives.
No matter what age or stage of life you’re in, you’ll connect to wonderful, thrilling music in this exploration of what it means to be human. Please join us!
