Choral Chameleon's 'Wide Waters' Concert At St. Paul's This Weekend

St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Carroll Gardens will be hosting another great evening of music this week-end. Choral Chameleon, a chamber chorus lead by artistic director and founder Vince Peterson, will be performing the Tamar of The River Oratorio and choral water music of Palestrina, Conrad Susa and Simon &Garfunkel.
Here is more:
Choral Chameleon and New York Theatre Barn present a fully-staged oratorio suite derived from the new musical Tamar of the River written by 2011 Jonathan Larson Award winners Joshua H. Cohen and Marisa Michelson, and starring Jessica Grové in the title role of Tamar and the singers of Choral Chameleon as the River. This compelling work, an adult fable, follows young Tamar on her quest for peace in times of war, as she journeys to the River's source to hear the voice of God. The project will fuse the best of the choral and theatrical worlds to create a new hybrid form of immersive, explosive, visually spectacular, and emotional live storytelling. Co-Produced with NEW YORK THEATRE BARN
Choral Chameleon will then wade deep with the choral water music of Palestrina, Conrad Susa, Simon and Garfunkel and more. Listen to a preview of the concert selections here. And hear composer Conrad Susa talk about his early career and the two pieces included on this concert.
