The beauty of this magnificent land we call Cape Cod has inspired generations of artists over many decades. Our concert is a celebration of this unique inspiration. The Cape’s beauty, its creatures, the sea and the sand that millions come to enjoy – all of this and more, presented through choral singing. Our feature piece, Why I Wake Early, was composed by Ronald Perera and is based on poetry by Pulitzer Prize winning Mary Oliver. Perera takes us through a myriad of creatures’ activities so wonderfully captured by nature-loving Ms. Oliver. The combination of music and text makes this extended piece an absolute delight to sing and hear.
In addition, Artistic Director Allison Beavan has selected repertoire that captures the sea in a dramatic way using the human voice. And as a fun, light-hearted finish the Chorale will sing traditional songs specifically about Cape Cod. Not to be missed, this concert will surely take you on a Cape Cod musical journey.
