We open our 2022-2023 season with a program filled with music inspired by beings and creatures with wings - heavenly angels, birds, insects, and of children that dare to dream of flying in an earthly paradise where there is endless freedom. 

Featuring the Renaissance masterpiece that is "Archangel Gabriel Mass" composed by the Italian composer Giovanni Perluigi da Palestrina (1525-2594) for the Feast of the Annunciation where Archangel Gabriel announced to Virgin Mary that she would conceive the son of God. We will also present "The Blue Bird" by Charles Stanford, "The Bee" by Frank Bridge, "Blackbird" by The Beatles arranged by Daryl Runswick, "Goodnight My Angel" by Billy Joel arranged by Philip Lawson, "Fly" --- an improvised piece for choir and electronic music by our artistic director Dr. Mabalot, and "Paraiso" by Ryan Cayabyab arranged by Christopher Borela.  Join us as we explore divine and earthly manifestations of wings!

Transcribed by Carl Czerny
for Soloists, Choir, and Four Hands Piano

For Winter 2023, we bring to you a very unique and rarely performed interpretation of the masterpiece that is Mozart's Requiem transcribed for soloists, choir, and four hands piano by Austrian composer Carl Czerny (1791-1857) who is known for his pedagogical works for the piano. We explore the drama and richness of Mozart's choral and vocal writing akin to his operatic works. Here, the artistry of the Bellingham Chamber Chorale singers and guest soloists are highlighted solely by the orchestral textures of Czerny's innovative creation for four hands piano. Be with us towards the end of the winter season as we reflect and marvel on the beauty of the Requiem Mass --- a celebration of life and the afterlife.

Let Me Tell You

Have you ever felt or experienced something so amazing that you just have to tell someone about it? Let us tell you our reflections on the joy and bliss of existence, the ineffable beauty of creation, and that dimension where the Divine energy, the cosmos, and the human heart and spirit converge. 

We close our 2022-2023 season with the virtuosic motet in 3 movements "Singet dem Herrn" by Johann Sebastian Bach performed with a small instrumental ensemble, "I Was Glad" by Hubert Parry for choir and organ, "Let My Love Be Heard" by Jake Runestad, "We Beheld Again the Stars" by Randall Stroope, and the hauntingly beautiful Icelandic hymn "Heyr, Himna Smiður" arranged for choir and instruments by our artistic director Dr. Mabalot.
