Cornell’s renowned choirs return to the Pacific Northwest for the first time in 25 years! They take the stage at Town Hall with a concert featuring renaissance motets, folk songs, gospel, world music, and contemporary compositions. Centered on the theme of Generations, Cornell bridges the gap between contemporary and modern with works from noted composers and arrangers from the Pacific Northwest, including Karen Thomas, Sydney Guillaume, Keith Hamel, and Stephen Hatfield—plus settings of poetry by Toni Morrison and James Agee, and west coast premieres of commissions by Ted Hearne and Hanne Baeverfjord. Join these celebrated choirs for a performance that spans generations, with classical and contemporary works from across eight centuries and ten languages.
Presented Cornell University Chorus and Glee Club.
