NWCC 2017-2018 — 50th Anniversary Season


To celebrate the Christmas season, we focus on the composers who have taken their inspiration from stories of Mary and the birth of her son. We sample three very different settings of the Magnificat by WA Mozart, Richard Nance, and Christine Donkin — spanning four centuries. Some favorites from our choral library are blended with new music by composers from Spain, Poland, Norway, Canada, Missouri, and Kennewick, Washington. Guest oboist Ursula Sahagian joins us for this beautiful program.

Duke Ellington Sacred Concert

With the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra
Saturday, December 30, 2017, 7:30PM, University Christian Church, Seattle
Presented by Earshot Jazz


Every life passes through periods of passion and pathos, growth and stagnation, triumphs and blunders. If we're fortunate, we can find redemption along our path. In this concert, we sing about woes of our world, and then sing to reclaim our joy during the week of the Spring equinox, when the light turns us toward renewal and growth. Featured composers in the program include Heinrich Schütz, Claudio Monteverdi, Pavel Chesnokov, Pablo Casals, Alberto Ginastera, and contemporary Americans Brandon G Hurley and J Aaron McDermid.

Share this special concert with us when we celebrate our 50th Anniversary! We sing old favorites and new gems, looking back at the path we have journeyed together, and ahead to the promise of the future with all our talented singers. This program features the world premiere of a new piece by Eric William Barnum, commissioned for this high note in the history of the Chorus. Eric will be in residence with the NWCC during the week of the concerts. A 50th Anniversary Reception follows the Sunday concert. Join us as we cross into the next 50 years of the Northwest Chamber Chorus.
