A Mother’s Day Bouquet
Celebrate the love of family and friends with us as we offer a fresh bouquet of songs, sacred and secular, on the evening before Mother’s Day. Admission is free.
In addition to the pieces performed by the full chorus, the hour-long concert will showcase the Society’s women’s ensemble in three numbers: the spiritual “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child” and a pair of lullabies, one traditional Irish and one by young Canadian composer Sarah Quartel.
In addition, the concert features soprano Morgan Seip, a senior at the University of West Florida, who was named the College Level 2 winner in Young Voices, the Society’s first competition for high school and college singers. She’ll sing a set of songs by three Romantic composers, including Brahms’ familiar and beloved “Lullaby” and Dvorak’s equally familiar and beloved “Songs My Mother Taught Me.” She’ll conclude with “Laurie’s Song,” the musings of a young girl on the verge of high school graduation, from Aaron Copland’s opera The Tender Land.
The concert also includes performances by violinist Ashley Wu, a sophomore International Baccalaureate student at Pensacola High School, and trumpeter Tim Mallette, who is currently pursuing a Masters in Music Performance at the University of New Mexico.
