On Saturday, June 19, at 7:30 PM, The Arcadian Chorale will sing its spring program, “The Great American Choral Songbook” at the St. Rose Of Lima Parish gymnasium, South Street & Lincoln Place, Freehold, NJ, 07728.
This live performance will be open to a live audience. Both audience members and singers will be required to wear masks and observe social distancing protocols.
This celebration of American composers will include works both new and familiar,
contemplative and witty, by luminaries such as Samuel Barber, William Billings,
Charles Ives, and Leonard Bernstein. The American musical theater will also be represented, by George Gershwin’s sumptuous Summertime and Harold Arlen’s
Over the Rainbow.
Poetry will play an important role. “Animal Crackers” by the now world-celebrated
Eric Whitacre is a set of delightful pieces on short poems by Ogden Nash epitomizing the characteristics of canaries, cows, kangaroos, and fireflies—in music! The Chorale will also sing Randall Thompson’s beautiful setting of The Road Not Taken, on a poem by Robert Frost. A rousing rendition of This Land is Your Land by Woody Guthrie as well as the beloved American folk-song Shenandoah will also be performed.
Now in its 29th year, Arcadian Chorale has presented its exciting classical music performances at many sites in the greater Monmouth area. Under the inspiring direction of its Founder and Music Director, Marina Alexander, the group is regularly invited to perform throughout New York and New Jersey, including numerous past appearances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and the NJPAC. Arcadian Chorale is a member organization of the Freehold Borough Arts Council, NJ Choral Consortium, and Monmouth Arts.
