Beautiful: UW Choir Concert

Saturday, July 26, 2014 - 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm


What exactly is beautiful about choral music and choral singing?

Our program this spring is choral exploration of what we find deeply moving and meaningful in the act of singing together. Is it the notes, rhythms, and structures of the sounds or the act of the singing together itself? Does it have something to do finding a voice against injustice, bonding as peoples, cultures, or nations through song? Is it harmony, melody, or rhythm? Is it the poetry or the texts with which we work? What exactly makes choral music beautiful?
