Join the Choir of the Salish Sea on March 7, 2020 as they sing the world into balance through rollicking, riparian repertoire, and celebrate a trophic cascade of ecological restoration.
Songs include: -“Down in the River to Pray,” a processional from the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? -the muscular “Volga Boat Song,” sung in Russian -the Sons of the Pioneers’ classic “Cool Water,” with guests the Tango Cowboys -“Bring Me Little Water Sylvie,” with choreography -an exquisitely gentle a cappella version of “Shenandoah,” in surround sound -“Rivers of Babylon,” by the Jamaican reggae group The Melodians -“How Wolves Change Rivers,” director Kevin’s haunting (and howling) new composition -Billy Joel’s “River of Dreams,” featuring several soloists
A new, select tenor and bass choir, The Choir of the Salish Sea is taking the Bellingham area by storm. Music lovers have quickly bonded with this powerful and intimate group who invite their audience to help them make the world a better place. The music of “How Wolves Change Rivers,” sung from the heart, could give you hope for the future of the planet.
Choir member Ryan Robie says: “Growing up in the Pacific Northwest led me to value the natural world. I have enjoyed singing in choirs for most of my life so far, and I’m excited to explore two of my passions— music and riparian restoration work—within the context of this upcoming concert. Intersectionality and civic engagement are themes for Choir of the Salish Sea concerts. We take what we enjoy and care about, and use our talents to make a positive difference for our collective future!”
