The Hillsdale Arts Chorale continues its 45th season with Love, Loss, and Renewal, on Saturday, March 3, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Hillsdale at 7 PM.
“We are really looking forward to showcasing some awesome music for this concert,” said Conductor, Clelyn Chapin. “In fact, it’s some of the most beautiful material we have performed this year.”
These three topics - love, loss, and renewal, have inspired centuries worth of music. Brahms, Whitacre, and Billy Joel will be performed to highlight these topics.
“The program will feature the cycles of love - from the first moments of exhilaration and butterflies to the sadder parts, like breakups,” said Chapin. “The music will also focus on finding peace in ourselves and renewal through that whole process. Imagery of nature - breakdown and renewal – of the seasons will also be highlighted.”
Two violinists from Michigan State University will perform with the choir for several tunes. Some arias will also be performed by Cindy Merrit and Ben Judson.
Tickets are $10 at the door. Under 18 are free with an adult. A light reception will follow the concert.
The Arts Chorale closes season 45 on Saturday, May 5, with Jazz and Java. That concert will also be held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church – in the gymnasium – at 7 PM.
