EARTHSONGS :: New Days (Santa Clara)

EARTHSONGS :: New Days (Santa Clara)

Presented by The Choral Project at Mission Santa Clara de Asís

We conclude our season with hope for better tomorrow by bringing awareness to the horrific issue of human trafficking in the Bay Area and the world. We shall respond with music that reminds us of our own power to affect change! The concert will honor The Bay Area Anti-Trafficking Coalition: an organization that believes “eradication [of human trafficking] is possible only when the collective impact of individuals and groups comes to bear upon this multifaceted issue…As we mobilize the public to engage the issue, we envision a slave-free San Francisco Bay Area and beyond.” Repertoire will feature music from around the globe, ranging from modern classics such as Joshua Shank’s amazing “rules to live by” (written for The Choral Project in celebration of its 20th anniversary), Sarah Hopkins “Past Life Melodies” (an other-worldly song that features overtone singing), to contemporary pop tunes, such as the acappella setting of Three Dog Night’s “Shambala.” Audience favorites — Frank Tichelli’s “There Will Be Rest,” John David’s “You Are the New Day,” and Daniel Hughes’ “Babethandaza” (complete with full-chorus choreography) — will round out this meaningful concert.
