TIMES AND PLACES

The TIMES AND PLACES concert takes place on Sunday, October 27th, 2019 at 5:00pm.  For this concert, we need a well-rounded repertory of pieces from times throughout history, and places around the world.  Singers are encouraged to audition pieces that have a unique perspective on a particular time or place.  Here are some sample suggestions of songs that fit well with this theme.  We have easy choral arrangement for each of these, but each one requires a soloist.  Youtube arrangements are different than our arrangements.
