Saturday, June 10, 2023: Ancora Presents “Love and Longing”
June 10, 2023 | Time TBA
7400 Woodlawn Ave NE, Seattle
Our final concert of the season, Love and Longing, will be a tonally rich adventure as Ancora presents the premiere of Pacific Northwest Composer Donald Skirvin’s "All My Songs for You," commissioned by Ancora. This suite of three pieces sets poetry from Sara Teasdale’s 1920 work Flame and Shadow. The choir premiered the final movement ("In All My Songs") on our Transient Glory concert in February 2023.
As a partner to these Teasdale texts, the choir will also perform "Three Love Songs of Emily Dickinson" by the American composer James Mulholland. Joining these two suites will be Johannes Brahms’ "Four Songs for Three Voices" and works by Richard Nance, Kim Kamerin, Mari Esabel Valverde, and Alice Parker.
