(February 8, 2021) Choral Artists of Sarasota’s 42nd season, entitled “Rise Up!” continues with “You’ll Never Walk Alone,” which features” uplifting songs from Broadway musicals. Through adversity, many characters of the Broadway musical “rise up” and successfully confront life challenges, inspiring and ennobling us by their courage. This uplifting Broadway revue features selections from Les Misérables, Carousel, A Chorus Line, Sound of Music, Man of La Mancha, and Sweet Charity—characters that inspire us through their perseverance. Guest soloist for this performance is renowned Broadway star Ann Morrison. Originally designed to be part of the Garden Music Series presented by Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, the live performance for patrons has been re-imagined as a virtual experience. With the Choral Artists Chamber Chorus; Michael Stewart, piano; and Joseph Holt, piano and conductor. Filmed onsite at Selby Gardens, this virtual concert will be available on demand March 11-April 9.
The second concert in March is “Love in the Air.” For this, Choral Artists of Sarasota teams up with dancemaker Elizabeth Bergmann to present a newly choreographed work to the music of Liebeslieder Walzer by Johannes Brahms. With a stellar vocal quartet and piano four-hand accompaniment, this charming and endearing work springs to life. The charm continues with Brahms’ sequel, Neue Liebeslieder.
