Join the World House Choir
June 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pmFree
The World House Choir invites interested singers to join in singing Missa Gaia. Four performances are scheduled for September in Yellow Springs, Dayton and Urbana.
Rehearsals are held Monday nights at 7:00 at the Foundry Theatre on the campus of Antioch College, 920 Corry Street. Voice placement exercises for new singers will be held at 6:30 June 10. Come join us as we breathe life into this beautiful earth oratorio.
Originally performed by the Paul Winter Consort, Missa Gaia is a contemporary ecumenical and ecological Mass celebrating the earth. The work features lyrical melodies with dynamic rhythms from African, Brazilian, and American gospel traditions, incorporating traditional Mass and biblical texts and interweaving the voices of wolf, whale, and harp seals.
The World House Choir hopes to collaborate with members of the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company (DCDC) and two dynamic composers of color whose short commissioned compositions will receive their world premieres at the concerts.
Come sing with the World House Choir. We’re adding new voices, 6:30pm June 10. Child care is provided.
