Fauré Requiem & Messiah Selections Holiday Concert - November 19, 2019

Westview High School Performing Arts Center | San Diego, California

 

In a night of inspired music, the choir performed Gabriel Fauré’s Requiem, the best known of his larger works, as well as solo and chorus selections from George Frideric Handel’s Messiah.  They were accompanied by twelve local professional musicians to form a full chamber orchestra.  The two featured soloists were soprano Allyson Power and baritone Anthony Whitson-Martini.

 

Fauré’s Requiem is a uniquely beautiful mass for the dead which director Gray described as "intimate, comforting and a more peaceful view of death."  The selections from Handel’s Messiah, a holiday favorite, included the pastoral symphony, solo arias, and the popular “Hallelujah” chorus.

 

Why We Sing! Spring Concert - May 19, 2019

Incarnation Lutheran Church | Poway, California

 

The Poway Community Choir's spring concert was performed in the beautiful sanctuary of the Incarnation Lutheran Church in Poway and featured choral selections that convey their love of singing and the beauty that music brings to our lives.  "I Lift My Voice," "How Can I Keep From Singing," "One Song," "Why We Sing" and "Sing!" are a few of these selections.  Instrumental accompaniment included a penny tin whistle on the Celtic folk song "Wild Mountain Thyme" and percussion on several African pieces.  The concert finale was Toto’s "Africa" complete with choralography to simulate a rainstorm.

Vivaldi Gloria: 'Tis the Season Concert - November 30, 2018

Del Norte High School Theatre | San Diego, California

 

The Poway Community Choir performed Antonio Vivaldi's joyful "Gloria" accompanied by members of the Poway Chamber Orchestra.  Several choir members were featured as soloists in this major choral work sung in Latin.  The second half of the concert featured a variety of festive favorites sung in English and Hebrew, including “Sleigh Ride,” “Carol of the Bells,” and “Ose Shalom.”  The night concluded with an audience sing-along of holiday classics.

European Summer Performance Tour - June 23 to July 2, 2018

Prague, Czech Republic ∙ Vienna, Austria ∙ Salzburg, Austria

 

The Poway Community Choir and the Poway Symphonette were honored to be selected for the International Cantus Music and Cultural Festival in Salzburg, Austria in the summer of 2018.  Our performance tour took us to Prague, Vienna, and Salzburg, and we were fortunate to perform in many spectacular venues, including:

  • St. Peter's Church - Vienna, Austria

  • Melk Monastery - Melk, Austria

  • Great Hall of the Mozarteum - Salzburg, Austria

  • Ecumenical Celebration at the Salzburg Cathedral - Salzburg, Austria

  • Mirabell Gardens - Salzburg, Austria

  • St. Gilgen Pavillion - St. Gilgen, Austria

 

No whirlwind musical tour is complete without sightseeing!  Our choir members had the chance to explore these wonderful cities, and the local guides were lovely.  Some of the highlights of these adventures were:

  • Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, and Prague's Old Town - Prague, Czech Republic

  • St. Peter's Church, Hofburg Palace, Innere Stadt (the "Inner City"), Schönbrunn Palace, and Gumpoldskirchen (a small wine village) - Vienna, Austria

  • Melk Monastery - Melk, Austria

  • Salzburg city tour, Mozart's Geburtshaus ("Birthplace"), Hohensalzburg Castle, Sound of Music bus tour (of course!), Lake District bus tour, and the village of St. Gilgen - Salzburg, Austria

The Cantus festival itself was a gathering of choirs and musical groups from around the globe, and sharing our music with one another was an amazing experience.  We were truly grateful to sing with such great people in these beautiful cities!
