For our winter concert, we spin a seasonal story exploring how gallant heroines rise high in the face of foolish mandates and unfavorable circumstances. Throughout this evening of merriment, fearless maidens reconcile the faults of their elders and the folly of the natural world, saving face and community all in a day’s work. As the story unfolds, we sing for you music from Indonesia and from the Jewish Diaspora; two spirituals and other American folk songs; two Georgian pieces; and a motet by Victoria.
Vivoce consists of 16-24 singers and performs two concerts a year celebrating the seasons through music under the direction of Jamie Webster. The concerts feature folk music from around the world, poetry and storytelling. The group performs in vibrant costumes at St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church in the Hollywood Neighborhood of Portland.
