I Cantori, Savannah’s premiere chamber choir, will present a spring concert, Island Magic, at 7:30 pm on Sunday, May 21, 2017 at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on Skidaway Island. Dr. Robert Harris, director, reports that he found inspiration at an international choral conductors’ convention in Minneapolis. “I had been toying with the idea of doing some pieces I had set aside from the Philippines and a couple of other lovely things from Asia, but the theme hadn’t showed up yet”, he said. “Walking around chilly Minneapolis in early March inspired thoughts of blue skies and warm beaches. An island concert concept was born!”
He adds that it has been a real joy to seek out more pieces and had to make difficult decisions about what to leave out. “In fact, the singers dread the possibility that I might pull out something new at the last minute! I think we are aiming at properly pronouncing seven languages. Not bad for a bunch of southerners!” states Dr. Harris.
Included in the concert are some familiar pieces, such as Waltzing Matilda, Annie Laurie, Loch Lomond, Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye, and Aloha ‘Oe. With songs from ten different islands, there is a lot of fun in this concert – don’t miss it!
Tickets for the concert are $15 for adults, and $10 for students and seniors. For more information call 912.925.7866.
