The Sanctuary will once again be filled with the lovely voices of the Skylark Vocal Ensemble. This first concert of their 2021-2022 season, It’s a Long Way, explores our collective experience of living through the 19 months since their last concert. It has been a time of great disruption, of isolation, of fear, and of loss, but also a time for reflection, for hope, for growth, and for action.
In addition to pieces arranged for choir, half a dozen Skylark singers are featured as soloists in a concert that explores a wide range of musical styles – renaissance polyphony, traditional folksongs, modern choral compositions, solo songs for voice, romantic lieder, and even a classic jazz standard. It’s a Long Way was recorded as Skylark’s next album in the summer of 2021, with 26 artists taking part in a innovative recording that we believe may be our finest yet. Join us for what will be an unforgettable return to the concert hall!
