Choral Arts Northwest begins their season with a gala celebration of their 25 years together, presenting audience and singer favorites from their past, including selections from Rachmaninoff’s Vespers, Britten’s Festival Te Deum, and Josef Rheinberger’s glorious Cantus Missae for double choir. Founding CANW conductor Richard Sparks returns, along with CANW vocal alumni, to join current Artistic Director Robert Bode in a festival concert of choral highlights to match the breadth and splendor of their 25 years of music-making.
A meet-the-artists reception will follow the concert.
