St. Augustine Chamber Singers -”This Pretty Planet”
Cathedral Basilica- October 16, 2016, 7 p.m.

“This Pretty Planet”, a concert to be presented by the St. Augustine Chamber Singers and the St. Augustine Youth Chorus, has been rescheduled for Sunday, October 16, at 7 pm in the St. Augustine Cathedral Basilica.  Bad weather due to Hurricane Matthew forced the cancellation of the first date.

The choirs, directed by Kathleen Vande Berg and Kerry Fradley and accompanied by Barb Mattingly and Henry Keating, will sing a concert which will speak to the hearts of all of us who have seen the beauty of the earth challenged by the ferocity of nature and the neglect of people.  “Requiem”, a song written as an invitation to compassion and as a song of prayer and comfort in memory of the Asian tsunami of 2004 will be a centerpiece of the program.  The Chamber Singers will also sing the poetry of Langston Hughes, Archibald Lampman and Edna St. Vincent Millay in beautiful musical settings by contemporary composers.  The Youth Chorus will join the Chamber Singers in a spiritual, Lay Earth’s Burden Down, and also in a unique setting of I Love You, What a Wonderful World.  The concert will also feature klezmer-style clarinetist, Joseph Yorio and drummer, Sawyer Chubin. The audience will be invited to join in singing the Woody Guthrie favorite, This Land is Your Land, at the conclusion of the concert.  

This concert is free of charge.  A basket will be available to those who wish to help defray expenses.
