Mystic Chorale presents EARTH SONGS: Singing for Our Home with Jim Scott!
Sat, May 20, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This spring Mystic Chorale’s 120 singers soar with inspiring melodies, defiant joy —and urgency!— on behalf of this Earth we call our home.
Jim Scott, the amazing jazz guitarist/composer whose brilliance was the highlight of three Paul Winter Consort albums, is the featured guest in EARTH SONGS: SINGING FOR OUR HOME, directed by Mystic Chorale founder Nick Page. Jonathan Singleton performs his magic on piano and Billy Novick on soprano saxophone.
The songs lift, challenge and inspire. Jim, who marched and sang with Pete Seeger on many occasions during their forty-year friendship, leads the house in Seeger’s great anthem, My Rainbow Race and sings several of his own songs, including The Rainforest Song, which has been described as “an ecosystem of melody and rhythms”. The program also premieres four exciting pieces, including Nick Page’s most recent commissioned song of dedication to life and the responsibility of living with purpose.
As always in Mystic concerts, the audience will be invited to sing along and be part of the community. Join the crowd as Mystic sings out for our environment!
Tickets: $18 general admission (under 5 free) available at the door one hour before each concert or through Brown Paper Tickets
