For the first time, Enumclaw’s Calvary Presbyterian Church will be hosting the Tacoma-based Cora Voce adult choir for a concert on Feb. 23.
The choir’s featured piece is “Phoenix” by Peter Hallock.
According to the 1987 notes of the late Carl Crosier, a Hawaiian musician, “From its opening bars, this work, with its unique combination of instruments and voices, succeeds in transporting both performers and listeners. Indeed, this transcendence to a ‘resurrection experience,’ the essence of this piece, is captured so vividly through the musical medium as the drama of the text unfolds.”
The choir is also performing Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Song Cycle: An die ferne Geliebte, Op. 98” (To the Distant Beloved) with guest artists Jon Lackey and James Jelasic for the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
The concert is planned for 3:30 p.m. Tickets can be bought online at coravoce.org/performance.htm; general admission is $18; seniors have a discount for $15, and students for $10.
