The 45-voice North Florida Women’s Chorale, conducted by Kerry Fradley, will open the Romanza Chamber Music Series with a concert entitled “Visions”. John Rutter, pre-eminent British composer, recently published the work “Visions” for women’s chorus and violin and the NFWC will be premiering this music in NE Florida during this concert. The solo violinist will be Judy Steinmeyer, a Jacksonville favorite, with Kathleen Vande Berg as accompanist. Along with music about dreams and visions, the Chorale will sing some of their all-time favorites and audience pleasers, including Music Down in My Soul by Moses Hogan, Nuit d’Etoiles by Debussy, Zion’s Walls by Copland, How Can I Keep from Singing and ‘Tis the Gift to be Simple by Alice Parker.
The NFWC is being honored for their outstanding choral singing with an invitation to perform a concert in Carnegie Hall with John Rutter as conductor. The concert will be presented in NYC on Memorial Day and will feature Rutter’s “Requiem”.
This is a free concert but donations to benefit the Women’s Chorale will be gratefully received at the close of the concert.
