We in Strata Vocal Ensemble are excited to reveal some details of our upcoming concert, Strata’s Sphere, which will showcase all manner of songs about the sun, moon, and stars. Clearly our vibrant new conductor, Laurel Forshaw, is inspiring us to new heights!

Highlights include Northern Lights by Ola Gjeilo, Sure on this Shining Night by Morten Lauridsen, Ballade to the Moon by Daniel Elder, andChoose Something Like a Star by Randall Thompson. We are thrilled to have found a gorgeous, mystical piece by Eleanor Daley composed for a poem by Mary Louise Martin, a Mi’kmaq poet, called grandmother moon.  Also featured are “heavenly” selections by Canadian composers, Stephen Chatman, Robert Ingari, and Susan Ellenton.

For a change of pace the program will include Butterfly by the hit vocal group Rajaton, along with arrangements of George Harrison’s Here Comes the Sun and Irving Berlin’s oldie but goldie I got the Sun in the Morning.  There’s always something for everyone at a Strata concert!

We invite you to join us in celebrating the splendor of the heavens!
