Skylark Presents From Winter to Spring - Jan 24th and 25th
Event Date: January 24, 2014
Posted: January 10, 2014
Location: Georgia, USA
Choir type: Professional Choirs
Skylark, Atlanta's critically acclaimed all-star professional choral ensemble, is pleased to present From Winter to Spring, an inspiring program exploring music inspired by two seasons. We first share a set of winter-themed pieces, including Poulenc’s chilling Soir de Neige. We then (optimistically!) turn to the coming of Spring, prominently featuring Benjamin Britten’s Flower Songs. In addition to works by Poulenc, Britten, and Debussy, this program will feature what we believe is the Atlanta debut of Sir John Tavener’s Butterfly Dreams, an 8-movement, 10-part setting of poems exploring the fleeting beauty of the butterfly.
