The Irving Chorale will be the guest chorus of the Lone Star Wind Orchestra. This first collaborative effort between these two groups will highlight the work of Australian born composer, Percy Grainger, one of the most influential composer-pianists of the 20th century.
The Lone Star Wind Orchestra and the Irving Chorale will perform a number of works for choir and wind band including Grainger’s Marching Song of Democracy, Irish Tune from Country Derry, Australian Up-Country Tune, The Widow’s Party, and Children’s March: Over the Hills and Far Away. The program features the masterwork Lincolnshire Posy along with the composer’s Molly on the Shore and “The Gumsuckers” March.
This concert presents a rare opportunity to hear many of Percy Grainger’s works for choir and wind band including a combined performance of the final movement of Lincolnshire Posy, “The Lost Lady Found,” and the original folksongs sung before each movement.
