WALLA WALLA — The Whitman Chorale and Chamber Singers will present their fall concert Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in Cordiner Hall. The show is free.
The “Dream, Haunt, Hope” theme of the concert will be presented in various mediums throughout the night. Writings will be on display in the lobby prior to the concert. Original poems written by chorale members will be read by actors throughout the night.
Dancers will perform during spoken word and sung portions. The audience can also expect the choir to sing from various locations in Cordiner from time to time. Lullabies, nightmares, hopes and aspirations will be included in the artistic presentations, in accord with the night’s theme.
The concert will be a different kind of choral performance, says Jeremy Mims, conductor.
“The music spans history, from chant to contemporary pieces to musical theater. The concert will be a dream realized: an integration of the arts in the context of a choral performance,” Mims said in an email.
