The York College Concert Choir performed their annual Spring Works concert on Monday, April 28. The theme for this year’s production was Wings of Reverie.
The concert featured "lush, gorgeous, contemplative music,” from composers such as Eric Whitacre, Johannes Brahms, Morten Lauridsen, and Z. Randall Stroope, among others, said Dr. Clark Roush, director.
The music explored dreams and fantasies, relationships, nature, and night, says Roush. A number of lullabies were included, as well.
The event was an infusion of art forms, as John Baker, associate professor of communication, provided oration throughout the concert and YC student Bethany Miller performed an interpretive dance to accompany one of the pieces. Instrumental solos were performed by Megan Kroeker and Drew Ritchie.
The final piece of the concert was The Awakening by Joseph R. Martin. Roush describes it as “an incredible, dramatic piece of music,” that depicts a dream of life without music. When the dreamer awakes, he praises music and the Creator of music in a moving and memorable way.
