Welcome to Spring 2017 with the Outer Cape Chorale! This concert will feature John Rutter's Mass of the Children and the Eddy Elementary Select Children's Chorus under the direction of Stacey Faris. I am very excited about this program. The Mass is filled with beautiful harmonies, exciting rhythms and lovely melodies that the children will sing with their angelic voices. In addition, we will sing a few other pieces highly acclaimed such as, To the Mothers in Brazil by Lars Jansson and For the Sake of Our Children by Jeffrey Ames. This concert proves to be at once lovely, exciting and challenging for us. I just can't wait! I've missed everyone!
Art McManus will be back as accompanist with us for this May concert season. We will have a chamber orchestra as well!
