From our Artistic Director Nathan Leaf:
I am so excited to introduce the 2018-19 season of The Concert Singers of Cary, a collection of concerts we’re calling Songs You Love to Sing. It’s our 28th year, and it is filled with music that will captivate you, inspire you and tug at your heartstrings.
We kick it off with a bang in October with The World Beloved: A Bluegrass Mass, featuring as guest artists one of North Carolina’s hottest ensembles, Hank, Pattie & The Current bluegrass band. (Oct. 27 at the Cary Arts Center)
We follow that with two audience favorites in December, Holiday Pops (Dec. 8 at the Cary Arts Center) and Handel’s Messiah. (Dec. 15 at the Halle Cultural Arts Center, Apex)
February charts a new path for Concert Singers, with the premiere of our Discovery Concert Series featuring our Vocal Artists performing Bach’s beloved Cantata 140 (Feb. 2 at St. Francis UMC, Cary). February also brings our second annual Cary Big Sing, for all the community to join. (Feb. 25 at the Cary Arts Center)
Our March concert is called Songs You Love to Sing: Music from The Great American Songbook and includes favorites from the first half of the 20th century, America’s golden age of song. (March 9 at St. Francis UMC, Cary)
The end of the season finds us collaborating with old friends, as we join Cary Youth Voices on their April 5 performance (at the Cary Arts Center), and return to the Carolina Theater stage with the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle, performing music of Mendelssohn and Debussy. (May 5 at the Carolina Theatre, Durham)
It’s a season that has a little of everything, and will enable each listener to unleash the song that is already within. We are eager for you to join us on the journey.
