Bangor Children’s Choir in concert May 5
BANGOR — Bangor Area Children’s Choir will present their 2017 Spring Concert “Sunshine After Rain” on Friday, May 5 at 7:00 pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 225 French Street, Bangor. There is a requested donation of $5 per person.
The Treble Choir and Youth Chorale will present a program ranging from choral classics by Orlande de Lassus, Aaron Copland, Healey Willan and Randall Thompson to popular selections such as ‘Here Comes the Sun,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” and Dolly Parton’s “The Light of a Clear Blue Morning.”
A particularly timely and poignant selection is Kurt Bestor’s “Prayer of the Children,” written in the mid-1990s in response to the terrible civil war and ethnic cleansing was taking place in the former country of Yugoslavia. Part of the lyrics say – “Help me to feel the sun again upon my face…Can you hear the prayer of the children?”
Bangor Area Children’s Choir is conducted by Artistic Director, Robert Ludwig, and involves singers from twelve different communities in the region. For more information – http://www.bangorareachildrenschoir.com/ or call 974-7715.
