Aurora Singers

Aurora Chamber Singers present their Spring Concert:

Crossing Borders

R. Nathaniel DettChariot Jubilee
Listen to the Lambs
America the Beautiful (Katherine Lee Bates)
Howard HansonSong of Democracy
David ConteThree Mexican Folk Songs
Frederick PiketSea Charm

The concert celebrates music with ties to Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The two 20th century cantatas by African-Canadian composer R. Nathaniel Dett represent our neighbor to the north. U.S. composer Howard Hanson’s Song of Democracy sets words by Walt Whitman, and Frederick Picket's song cycle Sea Charm sets the deeply moving words of Harlem Renaissance poet, Langston Hughes. David Conte's arrangement of Three Mexican Folk Songs completes the border crossings.
