Nova Singers, under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, presents two performances of VoiceDance Saturday, February 16 at 7:30 p.m. at First Lutheran Church in Galesburg, and Sunday, February 17 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Davenport.
Voices dance, whether it’s imitating birds in a Monteverdi madrigal, evoking tenderness in a French love song, or grooving to jazz. In this unique program, Nova will perform classic works by Monteverdi and Poulenc with surprising rhythms. Our fun, modern sets include Haitian rhythms that will make you want to get up and dance! Our vocal jazz set includes VoiceDance by Greg Jasperse as well as arrangements of MLK and God Only Knows. Also featured on the program will be Ubi Caritas, which was composed for the marriage of Prince William and Catherine Middleton and first performed at their wedding in April of 2011.
Nova Singers will be joined by students from Project Sing! at each concert. Conducted by Stephen M. LaCroix, the Geneseo Madrigal Singers from Geneseo High School will perform two pieces alongside the Nova Singers.
Artistic Director Laura Lane says that “This is the most challenging program I’ve done with Nova Singers in many years. But I love this music! Every single piece is beautiful, exciting and virtuosic, either rhythmically or harmonically.”
Nova Singers, a professional vocal ensemble under the direction of Dr. Laura Lane, hopes to share our musical soul with you. Nova Singers is known for bringing a wide variety of choral music to its audiences, and for the beauty and charm the singers impart to their music.
VoiceDance is sponsored by G&M Distributors and Blick Art Materials. Nova Singers’ 2012-2013 season is partially funded by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
