The Natural World

Our June program features pieces about about roses, summer nights on the water, the blessings of rain, birds and other aspects of nature, including insects! We’ll sing Les Chansons des Roses by Morten Lauridsen, The Bluebird by Charles Stanford, To be sung of a summer night on the water by Frederk Delius, Water: Making Everything by Sanford Dole, and, as a finale, Leonard Bernstein’s Make our Garden Grow from Candide. Our all-secular program combines a cappella selections with songs accompanied by piano in a lovely prelude to summer.
