Join the Seraphic Singers on Sunday, May 6 at 4:00 p.m. for their next performance at Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church.
This exciting performance will include two jazzy pieces by German composer Simon Wawer, composed for the 6-voice women's ensemble from Leipzig, Sjaella; a beautiful duet from Delibes' Lakme, "The Call of the Flowers," and the moving "Sing me to heaven," with lyrics by Jane Griner and music by her husband, Daniel E. Gawthrop.
Also on the program, a classic choral work by Randall Thompson, "Choose something like a Star" -- an amusing dialogue between a city mouse and a country mouse.
The Singers welcome back the talented young violinst, Ashley Freeburn, who will be featured in Eric Whitacre's "Five Hebrew Love Songs" along with percussionist Abby Longhurst. Ms. Longhurst will add the correct flavor to "Blue Skies" and "When I fall in love" with her trap set. All will enjoy a lovely violin obbligato in the familiar "Scarborough Fair," written by Canadian composer Stephen Smith.
