We are excited to welcome you all to the second year in our life as newVoices, and invite you to continue to be a part of our family as we prepare for our 2014–15 season.
NewVoices has begun work on a fascinating season ahead, starting with Where in the World is newVoices on Saturday, October 25, 2014 – 7:30 p.m. at the Lawrence University Memorial Chapel. We know you have all seen the show from the ‘90s with a similar name and a theme song by Rockapella (which you may or may not hear in the concert – you will have to come to find out!) Our concert will share a similar format by holding the concert in Appleton, but performing musical selections that will take your minds and spirits on a journey across the globe in search of the origins of each piece. The pieces performed will partially foreshadow the program newVoices will take on its Italy tour, and because you are our most beloved audience, we want you to hear it before we leave.
This opening concert is especially exciting for newVoices because we will be performing alongside a group of extremely gifted singers from area high schools who were invited to participate in our High School Master Singers program.
Winter is just around the corner and with it all kinds of wonderful Christmas traditions! Whether you are setting up the tree with your family, making an Advent calendar, or singing Christmas carols around the family piano, all of our traditions are very dear to our hearts. We want to invite you and your loved ones to be a part of newVoices’ most treasured tradition, our Christmas at the Chapel performances on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Lawrence University Memorial Chapel.
When we say be a part, we mean it literally — we expect you to sing! We want your voice to join ours, and the massive Brombaugh Organ, in singing hymns and carols of praise celebrating the birth of our Savior. The Chapel is the perfect venue for this joyous occasion, with a soft glow reflecting off the snow through gorgeous stained-glass depictions of religious text as newVoices performs works of reflection and praise; it is hard to find a better way to celebrate this sacred day than through song with your friends and family.
Our final concert of the year is OneVoice – An Ecumenical Community Celebration in Song on Saturday, May 9, 2015 – 7:30 p.m. at Lawrence University Memorial Chapel. This concert in the first of its kind in newVoices’ history, as it will be a community church choir “hymn sing.” The morning will feature workshops with various professors and other teachers for participating church choir singers, and in the evening, those same church choir singers will join newVoices in a concert showcasing what was accomplished in the workshops. This partnership will create one of the most memorable concerts for our choir this season!
