United in Song
Choral Artists of Sarasota Announces 2022-2023 Season
Choral Artists of Sarasota’s 44th season, entitled “United in Song,” features five concerts in October, December, March, April, and July. A season highlight includes the Florida premiere of “The Children’s March,” a moving oratorio by composer Andrew Bleckner that takes audiences on a journey to a historical event during the Civil Rights Era of the 1960s, with Charlayne Hunter-Gault as narrator. Other performances include “Say a Little Prayer,” featuring spiritual songs from different cultures and faiths; “Peace on Earth,” a holiday concert with traditional holiday carols that are interspersed with “In Terra Pax,” a work of childlike serenity by British composer Gerald Finzi; and an April concert featuring Bach’s pastoral setting of the Twenty-third Psalm paired with Mozart’s Requiem, a poignant contemplation of eternity. The group’s popular July 4th concert, “American Fanfare,” will be performed at the Sarasota Opera House with the Lakewood Ranch Wind Ensemble.
