Join The Center Chorale for the first concert of the 2017-18 season in a beautiful musical celebration of the lilting tunes of Scotland and Ireland, coupled with joyful bagpipes and Highland dancing. The fifty-voice ensemble will be accompanied by pianist Dr. Joseph Valent and conducted by Dr. Joe Stanford, professor emeritus from Palomar College, San Marcos, California and recognized throughout the Southwestern United States as a conductor, music educator, and baritone soloist. Bagpipers Felicity Carroll and Ross Naismith will play solos and accompaniment for Megan Ashworth, an accomplished dancer of Ashworth Academy of Highland Dance.
The Center Chorale is an ensemble of choral singers endorsed by the California Center for the Arts, Escondido performing choral literature of past masterworks and Twentieth and Twenty-first Century compositions in a variety of styles. The ensemble partners with the Center Children’s Chorus in promoting vocal music in our community. The Center Chorale is dedicated to excellence in performance and education and to preserving the tradition of singing as an expression of art.
