VANCOUVER, WA — The Clark College Concert Choir and Concert Band will perform the “Mystic Journeys” concert on Saturday, March 17 at 7:30 pm in the O’Connell Sports Center on the Clark College Campus. The concert is free to the public.
Clark College’s Concert Choir is prepared to take the audience on a Mystic Journey, from Williametta Spencer’s “At The Round Earth’s Imagined Corners” to the lush harmonies of Eric Whitacre’s “Lux Aurumque.” Two works by Eric William Barnum are featured, as is the setting of the ancient text “O Magnum Mysterium” by Thomas Luis de Victoria. All of the works evoke reflection, beauty, and the wonder of the inexplicable; either through the poetry or the harmonies used to express them.
The Clark College Concert Band’s mystical meanderings will contemplate our celestial existence with Maslanka’s Mother Earth, then travel to England where we will examine the ancient ruins of Stonehenge with the performance Dancing at Stonehenge by Anthony Suter. We will then investigate the great mystery of O Magnum Mysterium by Morten Lauridsen and finish with music from an alternate universe with the music from Lord of the Rings.
