OUR 38th CONCERT SEASON

Heralding Christmas 2021

Home is where the Heart is

Sunday - December 12, 2021 - 3:00 PM

Our singers are so looking forward to sharing the special feeling of singing together for our family and friends, that reverberation of sound and spirit in bodies and hearts that only comes when we’re all in the same room! We’ll return to favorite pieces we’ve loved in recent years, songs that lifted us up during the pandemic, and familiar tunes sharing warm and joyful messages of the season.

Skagit Valley Chorale is pleased to invite you to our “Heralding Christmas 2021” concert, "Home is where the Heart is", at 3:00 p.m. PST on December 12. The Chorale will perform at Salem Lutheran Church in Mount Vernon, Washington State, with no audience present. Instead we will broadcast our music via a Zoom webinar to our families, friends, fellow musicians, and supporters. Participants must register in advance to attend the concert. There is no charge for the concert, which we offer for the enjoyment of our communities local and worldwide -- but anyone interested is welcome to donate to the Chorale through Givebutter.

In celebration we return to singing in collaboration with others as we’re joined by members of the Skagit Symphony for two beloved pieces by Gabriel Fauré and Ludwig von Beethoven. Fauré invests his beautiful Requiem with tremendous emotional power in its journey to consolation and peace, and Beethoven’s triumphant finale to his 9th Symphony remains stirring after nearly two hundred years.

Our Past Concert Season

We want to express our sincere thanks for the nearly 800 viewers who tuned in for our virtual Christmas concert.  The concert allowed Chorale members to share their love of music through song and the support we've received fills our hearts with gratitude.

Celebrating in Song 2021

Even though we did not perform our traditional Celebrating in Song concert in the spring, we still sang on Zoom, each at our own desk or comfy chair at home. We saw each other in small boxes, and we took some time to say hello and exchange greetings and news. It is nothing like singing together, hearing one another’s breathing and entrances and chords. But it is making music even when we can’t hear each other. It is learning more about rhythm and improving our vocal tone. It is following our director as he shares music he’s recorded for us. It is new music: That Lonesome Road by James Taylor and Kisses Sweeter Than Wine by The Weavers, adapted from Lead Belly. It is enjoying pieces we’ve sung before: Walden and Happy Together. It is preparing to sing Fauré’s Requiem by listening to it in a deeper, more appreciative and analytic way.

 

YouTube presentations of That Lonesome Road and Walden are available for viewing.
