Don’t miss the stunning sounds of Seraphic Singers, an ensemble of 12 professional female vocalists, as they return to Westminster.
Founded and conducted by Gretchen Franz, Seraphic Singers perform a rich variety of the finest secular and sacred music composed and arranged for women’s voices. The singers are choral directors, music teachers, pianists, a financial planner, and a psychologist - all with a passion for singing great music.
This exciting performance will include a jazzy piece by German composer Simon Wawer, composed for the six-voice women’s ensemble from Leipzig, Sjaella, a beautiful duet from Delibes’ Lakme, The Call of the Flowers, and the moving Sing Me to Heaven, with lyrics by Jane Griner and music by her husband, Daniel E. Gawthrop.
Also on the program, a classic choral work by Randall Thompson, Choose Something Like a Star - an amusing dialogue between a city mouse and a country mouse - old standards Blue Skies and When I Fall in Love, folksongs including Scarborough Fair, and contemporary composer Eric Whitacre's Five Hebrew Love Songs accompanied by piano, violin, and percussion.
Come and enjoy this premier Pittsburgh vocal ensemble. It's a treat not to be missed! Admission is free; a freewill offering will support future programming.
