ISing Choir: Winterfest with Big Horn Brass Trombone Consort
ISing Choir will perform some of the most marvelously festive music of the season under the direction of Stephen Galván. The concert will feature the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, with a movement out of the “Christmas Oratorio” along with a motet “Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden.” These concerts will premiere “Maria Regina Caeli” by Mr. Galván. The romantically sumptuous “Abendlied” by Josef Rheinberger and the raucous “Gaudete” by Steven Sametz will be on the program. Two pieces will commemorate the life of poet and teacher Beverly Galván with the ever-popular “Pie Jesu” by Andrew Lloyd Webber and recent arrangement of “Ubi Caritas” by Dan Forrest. Guest artists will include the Big Horn Brass Trombone Consort and Jerry Bobbe on cello. A double choir work, “Alleluja, freuet euch ihr Christen alle” by Andreas Hammerschmidt, will be accompanied by the consort on sackbut, an early ancestor of the modern tenor trombone.
Concerts will be held on Saturday, December 9th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, December 10th at 3:00 pm at The Reser, with convenient parking in the nearby parking garage. In keeping with ISing’s mission, the choir will be accepting separate donations (cash, check or credit card) to support this season’s beneficiary, Depave, empowering disenfranchised communities to overcome social and environmental injustices and adapt to climate change through urban re-greening. Tickets are available at thereser.org.
