Boulder Concert Chorale

First United Methodist Church, Boulder
As we come back together as singers with our Boulder audience, our first concert of the year will be a powerful opportunity for healing and celebration. In honor of those lost to COVID and the Boulder King Soopers shootings, the first half will be a ceremony of meditative choral music from world traditions, including Lux Aeterna (Nimrod) by Elgar, and Underneath the Stars by Voces8.
Since concert going and group singing have not been possible for over a year, the second half gives our Boulder community the opportunity to sing with us and make a "joyful noise!" We will feature soloist Christopher Hearns with the chorus and a full band, singing some of the audience's favorite popular music, including hits by The Kinks, Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire, and the extremely popular Africa, from Toto. Africa, with its imitation of a thunderstorm to start the piece, is a viral YouTube favorite.
Choruses have always been the "voice of the people." We hope this concert will be a full-circle embrace of our Boulder community, providing solace and celebration as only choral music can do.
