The Providence spring concert features the high school Chorale, the select Chamber Singers, the middle school Chorus and the youth ensemble, Laudate, which includes children from grades 3 through 8 from the Lower School and the larger Santa Barbara community.
Director Rebecca Leftwich Hodson has planned a varied program of musical delights. The concert will open with “Tshotsholoza,” a traditional South African Freedom song remembering the life of Nelson Mandela. Traditional choral repertoire, including Renaissance madrigals, African American spirituals, and music from the French romantic era and contemporary Latin settings will be featured.
Closing the concert will be the haunting and exuberant setting of Alfred Lord Tennyson’s “Ulysses,” titled “Untraveled Worlds.”
