Joyful Noise
A Celebration of Life Featuring the Music of Dan Forrest

Saturday, October 12, 8pm | Monday, October 14, 7:30pm
First Presbyterian Church, 617 N Elm St, Greensboro

Our 37th Season opens with a world premiere commissioned in memory of Suzanne Goddard, one of Bel Canto’s most ardent supporters. Inspired by her life and spirit, one of choral music’s most sought-after composers, Dan Forrest, has crafted a work for chorus and chamber orchestra in remembrance of one so dear. The second half of the evening will feature Forrest’s Jubilate Deo, a sweeping setting of Psalm 100 in eight different languages representing “all the earth.” Dan Forrest was one of Suzanne’s favorite composers, and we are certain he will be one of yours too. Arrive early for a pre-concert discussion with the composer, and enjoy an evening of beautiful singing with Bel Canto.

Special Guests: Dan Forrest, Southwest Guilford High School Choir, Greensboro Youth Chorus

Sing classic soul songs with PopUp Chorus @ The ArtsCenter
Oct 17 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Come sing three classic soul songs with PopUp Chorus. Let your hair down and come feel good, as James Brown says! With an amazing band to accompany, come feel the joy, sense of connection, and fun of singing together. Think you are a bad singer? Forget about it – we welcome everybody!

The songs for this Thursday event are:
Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On”
https://youtu.be/x6QZn9xiuOE

Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man”
https://youtu.be/oAZLgsDRUv4

James Brown’s I Got You (I Feel Good)
https://youtu.be/oIZx93Y4Yas

New to PopUp Chorus? Want to know more?

Do you like to sing? Do you sing in the shower, in your car, or along to the radio? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then you belong in PopUp Chorus!

PopUp Chorus is the only chorus where you can show up when you want and skip it when you’re too busy. No audition, no ongoing commitment. Just show up and sing with an ad hoc bunch of other lovely, excellent people. Together, we form a chorus and are never the same group twice.

At each event, singers arrive and “learn” two or three pre-announced familiar songs, guided by our funny, skilled and encouraging conductor, Allan Friedman. When each song is ready (we embrace imperfection!) we do a final sing-through performance and applaud ourselves heartily! It’s simple and could not be more fun.

Find out more about our events by joining our mailing list, following us on Twitter, or join our Facebook group. Check out our WEBSITE to learn more and see our past videos: http://popupchorus.org/

Admission: $15 for adults and $8 for students (ticket fee and tax are additional). Student tickets must be purchased in person at the Box Office with appropriate ID. Drinks available from the bar. Free parking in the multi-story parking deck adjacent to The ArtsCenter.

Donizetti’s Mary, Queen of Scots @ The Stevens Center of the UNCSA
Oct 18 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

New to the Piedmont Opera repertory and making its NC professional debut! After 18 years of being held prisoner by Queen Elizabeth, her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots breathes fresh air. Believing herself to be the true heir to the throne, Mary has been imprisoned first for plotting against her cousin, and ultimately for attempting to murder her. This day of freedom turns to condemnation as these empowered women have a momentous meeting.

Vox Luminis: The Bach Dynasty @ Duke Chapel
Oct 18 @ 8:00 pm

Vox Luminis conveys its passion for early music at every performance; this devotion has propelled the ensemble out of its native Belgium, where it formed in 2004, to critical acclaim and to an international career singing music from the 16th to 18th centuries. A surprise win of Gramophone’s Recording of the Year in 2012 helped secure its reputation for intelligent mastery of early music.

In its sophomore appearance at Duke Performances, Vox Luminis brings a program entirely by the Bach family. J.S. Bach was proud of his ancestry, and his genealogical research remains our most accurate information about the Bach family even today. Vox Luminis sets the style of the older Bachs in relief, allowing the particularities of J.S. Bach’s cousins and nephew to shine new light onto how each of them approached the German choral tradition, entwining Lutheran chorales with new music.

Program

Johann Bach: Unser Leben ist ein Schatten
Johann Bach: Sei nun wieder zufrieden

Johann Michael Bach: Sei, lieber Tag, wilkommen
Johann Michael Bach: Nun treten wir ins neue Jahr
Johann Michael Bach: Herr, ich warte auf dein Heil

Johann Christoph Bach: Der mensch, vom Weibe geboren
Johann Christoph Bach: Lieber Herr Gott, wecke uns auf
Johann Christoph Bach: Fürchte dich nicht

Johann Ludwig Bach: Das Blut Jesu Christi
Johann Ludwig Bach: Das ist meine Freude

Johann Sebastian Bach: Jesu meine Freude

Donizetti’s Mary, Queen of Scots @ The Stevens Center of the UNCSA
Oct 20 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

New to the Piedmont Opera repertory and making its NC professional debut! After 18 years of being held prisoner by Queen Elizabeth, her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots breathes fresh air.

This day of freedom turns to condemnation as these empowered women have a momentous meeting.

Longing and Belonging: Psalms in Dialogue @ Goodson Chapel - Duke Divinity School
Oct 20 @ 4:00 pm

In medieval Christian monasticism, the Old Testament was described as “The Book of Desire” and selections were included in daily prayers and the annual cycle of readings within the church calendar. The Psalms were of particular importance; read and recited at every service, they traced for Christians the narrative arc from longing for God to fulfillment in Christ, from lament to adoration.

This event engages the Psalter through the performing and visual arts. Performers include Ekklesia Contemporary Ballet, Andrew Nemr, Duke Chapel Evensong Singers, and Christopher Jacobson. In addition to traditional sacred music by Herbert Howells, Caroline Shaw, and others, the evening includes new dance works choreographed for this event and artworks by Makoto Fujimura.

The evening begins with a lecture “On Painting the Psalms” by Fujimura, a leading contemporary artist. The performance begins at 4:30.

Stay after the performance to have a conversation with the artists.

This performance is part of the Psalms in Dialogue series, a multi-year collaborative project engaging artists, performers, and theologians in a creative dialogue on the power of the Psalms to comfort and inspire communities of faith.

Admission is free. Event parking is available for $5 in the Bryan Center Parking Garage at 125 Science Drive; ADA parking is available in the Bryan Center Surface Lot at the same address.

Auditions: Early Music Singers of Durham @ St. Luke's Episcopal Church
Oct 26 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The Early Music Singers of Durham, a newly formed musical group directed by Nicholas Smolenski, is holding placement auditions for fervent lovers of Medieval and Renaissance music. This is a purely collaborative ensemble, designed to create early music with already-established groups in Durham. Focus has also been placed on accessibility; each performance requires a small, finite number of rehearsals leading up to each service, rather than rehearse throughout the entire year. For the 2019–2020 season, we are delighted to be working with Kaye Saunders and the adult choir of St. Luke’s Episcopal, Durham for two performances: a morning service on February 2nd, 2020, and an afternoon evensong service on March 22nd, 2020.

If you’re at all interested in singing early music, you’re highly encouraged to schedule a placement audition on Saturday, October 26th from 9am-12pm by following this link to an application page: http://tinyurl.com/emsdurham.

Music of Hope and Love – Concert Singers of Cary @ Cary Arts Center Theater
Oct 26 @ 7:30 pm

A poignant, challenging, and ultimately uplifting event, the concert will feature three works by one of choral music’s newest leading composers, Jake Runestad, plus music by Beethoven and others. It will also feature student musicians from Panther Creek High School in Cary (Brad Bensen director).

The concert will open with Runestad’s A Silence Haunts Me, a dramatic exploration of Beethoven’s Heiligenstadt Testament, the letter in which the young Beethoven expresses his despair over his impending deafness and resolve to press on in fulfillment of his artistic destiny, and then connect to our own present-day challenges with Please Stay, a musical plea for suicide prevention and awareness. Also on the concert will be Runestad’s beautiful and inspiring The Hope of Loving.

Our Guest Artists

The Mallarmé Chamber Players are a flexible ensemble of professional musicians based in Durham, North Carolina, whose mission is to enrich the lives of the community through outstanding chamber music performance.The groups performs programs that include rarely heard works from the traditional chamber music repertoire that celebrate the diversity in our community by featuring the music of African American, Asian, Latino and women composers.

The Kingdom Choir @ Duke Chapel
Oct 26 @ 8:00 pm

Catapulted into stardom by its enrapturing performance at the 2018 wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, the Kingdom Choir makes its Duke Performances debut with its distinctive blend of gospel and pop music. Although the ensemble has been singing since 1994, its royal wedding performance amazed millions of viewers worldwide and laid the ground for a record deal with Sony Music.

Led by Karen Gibson, Britain’s “godmother of gospel,” the Kingdom Choir represents the best of the thriving British gospel tradition, and the effects of its performances stretch beyond purely musical events — it builds community with its singing. Kingdom Choir will fill its program at the iconic Duke Chapel with its characteristic arrangements of modern pop and classic gospel songs, including its show-stopping rendition of “Stand By Me.”

Tenebrae Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles @ Duke Chapel
Nov 12 @ 8:00 pm

Tenebrae, one of the premier vocal ensembles of England, brings its signature work, Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles, to Duke Chapel for an assuredly stunning performance. Formed in 2001 by former King’s Singer Nigel Short, Tenebrae quickly established a reputation for theatrical programming and precise performances in sacred and secular spaces. Its musical passion has led to several awards (including two BBC Music Magazine awards), nominations, and notable orchestral engagements.

Path of Miracles (2005), Tenebrae’s first major commission, explores the geography of the pilgrimage to Santiago through four movements. With a libretto by Robert Dickinson, Talbot’s composition brings together texts from medieval and modern sources and music from east Asia and ancient hymns. Singing from memory and in candlelight, Tenebrae dramatically animates the pilgrimage for the audience. To celebrate its fifteenth anniversary, Tenebrae commissioned Footsteps by Owain Park, a harmonically lavish piece which will feature Tenebrae performing alongside singers from the Duke Chapel Music program.

Chanticleer Faith of Our Fathers @ Baldwin Auditorium
Mar 6 @ 8:00 pm

Now in its 41st year, Chanticleer remains at the vanguard of choral ensemble excellence in America. Founded by a musicology student who wanted to perform the music he was studying, Chanticleer has grown into a twelve-member group adept with ancient masters and modern commissions. Along the way the ensemble has received several major music prizes, including two GRAMMY awards and Ensemble of the Year from Musical America, all while continuing in Billboard’s Top 10 best-selling classical artists.

At Duke Performances Chanticleer brings a five-part program of sacred music, Faith of Our Fathers. The repertoire spans from Hildegard’s “O virtu sapientiae” in the 12th century, to English and American works, featuring highlights of the English renaissance and colonial American traditions, complemented by modern tributes to those styles. The choir stops briefly in the Spanish New World before concluding with Chanticleer favorites.

The Tallis Scholars Rose without Thorn @ Baldwin Auditorium
Apr 22 @ 8:00 pm

The Tallis Scholars are undoubtedly the elder statesmen among Renaissance sacred music choirs throughout the world. Founded in 1973, the ensemble’s name is synonymous with early music excellence, which is why The Washington Post calls its performances of the repertoire “authoritative.” Its impressive discography has garnered several major music awards, including Gramophone’s Recording of the Year and three Early Music awards from the same magazine.

At the acoustically pristine Baldwin Auditorium, the Tallis Scholars celebrate English and Franco-Flemish music of the 16th century, with a particular devotion to the “rose without thorn,” the Virgin Mary. Music by Taverner, Byrd, and Fawkyner forms the first half, after which the ensemble jumps to the continent with Josquin and Gombert, punctuated by Arvo Pärt’s brief Da pacem.

Program

Rose Without Thorn

Taverner: Leroy Kyrie
Byrd: Laetentur caeli
Byrd: Tribulationes civitatum
Fawkyner: Gaude rosa sine spina
Chant: Da pacem
Josquin: Missa Da pacem (Agnus)
Pärt: Da pacem
Gombert: Media vita
Gombert: Magnificat III
