Concerts & News
Come Day, Come Night
From love songs to boat songs, CWC’s Spring concert celebrates the joy of a life well-lived. Emma Lou Diemer’s “When You Wake,” Gwyneth Walker’s “Love is a Rain of Diamonds” and “Morning Innocent,” Kevin Siegfried’s “Boat Song,” and Stephen Chatman’s “Love Songs” – stirring works that reflect the textures and rhythms, joys and challenges, of each new day.
On October 23, we premiered our newest commission, Grown Wild, to an enthusiastic audience. Listen to the pre-concert talk, as composer Melissa Dunphy and poet Melissa Apperson discuss the creative process and their collaboration.

Under the direction of Jane Ring Frank, we make wonderful music together. We learn about vocal technique and music theory, we are challenged, and we have fun. Learn more about auditions or contact Chorus Manager Patsy Eickelberg at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
“Choral music holds great intellectual and emotional power and has the means, above all arts, to create community—not only among singers but between singers and their audience.”
