One World: Pathways of Song
Sunday, April 16 at Everett Performing Arts Center
The collection of music for this Everett Chorale concert is about how music comes along with us as we journey through all aspects of our lives. Songs bring back special memories and feelings and our own personal “soundtracks” accompany major events through our experiences.
Celebratory and reflective songs from Scotland, Brazil, Lithuania, Estonia and other countries highlight special events and traditions. We will also focus on the Shaker and folk song traditions from the United States with the Shaker Songs arrangements by Kevin Siegfried and a beautiful arrangement of Amazing Grace by John Rutter.
What are the songs that make up the soundtracks of your lives? Songs you sang in elementary school music classes? The song from your prom? The song that was sung at your wedding or played at a dear family member's funeral? These songs make us remember and reflect and become a part of our traditions.
Here are the songs we’ll be performing in April. You’ll note that most songs below include YouTube links; check out the great music we’ll be singing.
