Vancouver, WA — The Clark College Women’s Choral Ensemble and the Clark College Chorale perform their Winter Concert “Coming Home” on Thursday, March 15, 2018 at 7:30 pm in Gaiser Student Center on the Clark College Campus. Admission is free.
“The Women’s Choral Ensemble is going on tour to Canada in April, so this really is a pre-tour concert for them,” says Director of Choirs Dr. Jacob Funk. “It’s nice to know we get to sing this repertoire here first, at Home, before we take in on the road.”
The Women’s Choral Ensemble repertoire is varied and features works from the 16th century to contemporary pieces. Many of the selections are upbeat, including to works by Rollo Dilworth: his adaptation of “I Sing Because I’m Happy” and his “Travelin’ Train.” Other highlights include the powerful “Spirit of Life” by Christopher Aspaas and the engaging message of “It Takes a Village” by Northwest composer Joan Szymko.
The Clark College Chorale’s repertoire is focused on traveling home. Titles include “The Road Home,” “The Road Not Taken,” “I’ll Be On My Way,” and “Break of Day.” Audiences will enjoy hearing the works of Randall Thompson, Shawn Kirchner, Rollo Dilworth, Bob Chilcott, and Stephen Paulus. Three of the selections feature soloists from the choir. Please come out and support these two great choirs!
