BERNSTEIN AT 100 – a Centennial Celebration
I Cantori, Savannah’s premier chamber choir, presents a concert honoring the 100th birthday of the prolific American composer, Leonard Bernstein. Although he may be best known for composing West Side Story, he also composed across many genres, including stage, ballet, film, choral and instrumental. The concert will include selections from Chichester Psalms as well as choruses from The Lark, a play about Joan of Arc. Guest soloist, soprano Emily Grundstad-Hall of Armstrong’s music faculty, will sing ‘Glitter and Be Gay’ from Candide. There will also be other numbers from Candide and, of course, West Side Story. In addition, Armstrong Chorale and vocal chamber Ensemble will be featured in the program.
The concert will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018, at 7:30 pm at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on Skidaway Island. Tickets are $20 for adults/$10 for students and will be available at the door. For more information call 925.7866.
