Friends in Quilcene will present Nov 13, 19 & 20

We have Quilcene Neighbors who sing in the RainShadow Chorale. Their music is top quality. Come see / hear them at the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Chimacum and 2 other venues this month. Here are the details:
>
> RainShadow Chorale presents its fall concert program in three afternoon performances. Artistic Director and Conductor Rebecca Rottsolk has chosen the repertoire for the program from a broad range of time and composers: early music of Giovanni Gabrieli, music of Brahms and Mendelssohn, and on through folk and contemporary compositions and arrangements.
>
>
> “Come to the Woods,” an exciting new work by Jake Runestad, is based on words of John Muir, and follows his venture into the woods and climbing a tree during a storm “for a wider look.”
>
>
> Sure to be a highlight, “Stars,” by Latvian composer Eriks Esenvalds takes its text from a Sara Teasdale poem in which she describes the majesty of the night sky. This piece is accompanied by 20 chorus members “playing” tuned wine glasses.
>
>
> A poem by Theodor Seuss Geisel (Dr. Seuss) – “A Prayer for a Child” – was the inspiration for a hauntingly beautiful arrangement by Estonian composer Pärt Uusberg.
>
>
> This colorful program concludes with John Rutter’s “When Icicles Hang,” a set of five wintery songs.
>
>
> RainShadow pianist, Lisa Lanza, will be assisted by Sharon Snel and Tirzah Small, flute, and Anne Krabill and Nancy Reis on oboe.

> Rottsolk says of her selections: "I knew I wanted our music not to be an escape from real life, but rather be music we could sink our teeth into, texts and songs that would help us be grounded in tumultuous times and uplift and inspire both singers and audience. If there is one text that sums up the ‘why’ of our concert, it would be the opening lines from the Rabindranath Tagore text used in “My Song,” also by Esenvalds”:

> “This song of mine will wind its music around you like the fond arms of love. This song of mine will carry your sight into the heart of things like a faithful star in the dark night over your road!"
