February Concert – From the Heart
February 16, 2019 | 4:00 PM | First United Methodist Church | 104 S. Pineapple Ave
The 40 singers of the Choral Artists of Sarasota lift their voices to celebrate the organization’s 40th season in “From the Heart,” a concert featuring Johannes Brahms’ “A German Requiem,” one of the one of the most inspirational works of the 19th century. The concert also features William Averitt’s “Over Jordan,” a setting of four spiritual pieces that contemplate the ecstatic journey into eternity.
Outstanding soloists Marcus DeLoach, baritone and Jenny Kim-Godfrey, soprano join Choral Artists for this performance of the Brahms.
Both have performed with Choral Artists in past seasons and are well-known to Sarasota audiences. The pianistic talents of Michael Stewart, current Choral Artists pianist and Andrew Lapp, former Choral Artists pianist, provide the accompaniment for Over Jordan, which will be a Sarasota premiere. Joining the chorus for the Brahms are two quintets – string and woodwind – with timpani.
