A collaborative concert featuring Constellation Choir and Bridges, a string orchestra
Constellation Choir and Bridges, a string orchestra, come together to present “Awakening,” a concert of works for choir and strings on February 15, 2020 at Bainbridge Performing Arts, beginning at 7:30 pm.
The featured work on the program will be Sunrise Mass by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. Conducted by Mario Alejandro Torres, the work takes us on a journey through lyrical, lush, evocative and stirring moments. The concert will also include works performed separately by Constellation Choir and Bridges.
In the fall of 2018 Stephanie Harris and Ginnilyn Hawkins attended the premiere performance of Bridges, an ensemble comprised of string players with the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra. Inspired by Bridges’ performance, they decided to create a vocal ensemble that could perform a concert of vocal and string music with Bridges. The result was Constellation Choir, a mixed-voice ensemble dedicated to exploring the unique repertoire for voice and strings.
Donations will be gladly accepted at the door.
Proceeds will benefit the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra.
