Bowdoin Chamber Choir

  • Location: Bowdoin Chapel, Chapel
  • Event Type: Concert

The Bowdoin College Chamber Choir, directed by Robert K. Greenlee, will feature the premiere of a work entitled DARWIN'S DREAM III,  created jointly by composer Elliott Schwartz and visual artist Dorothy Schwartz.  The visual images are drawn from Dorothy Schwartz's 2009 exhibition at the June Fitzpatrick Gallery in Portland (in celebration of Darwin's bicentennial year). An electronic collage by Elliott Schwartz, designed originally to be played at the gallery showing, has become the underpinning of a work for choir, piano, vocal soloists and narrator. The texts are taken from Darwin's own writings.

The Chamber Choir concert will take place in the Bowdoin Chapel on campus, Saturday and Sunday May 4th and 5th, 3:00 pm on both dates. The entire program is devoted to American music, and will also include works by Eric Whitacre, Alicia Keys and folksong transcriptions.
