On the theme of Generations
Cornell’s renowned choirs return for the first time in 25 years to the Pacific Northwest, exploring the theme of Generations, as reflected in renaissance motets, folksongs, gospel, world music, and contemporary compositions. Tour repertoire includes several noted composers and arrangers from the Pacific Northwest, including Karen Thomas, Sydney Guillaume, Keith Hamel, and Stephen Hatfield, settings of poetry by Toni Morrison and James Agee, and West Coast premieres of commissions by Ted Hearne and Hanne Baeverfjord. The program will conclude as usual with traditional Cornell Songs.
We love to share our music with communities all around the country and internationally. Olympia marks the fifth stop of our Pacific Northwest Tour. We hope to see you at the concert!
