Santa Barbara Master Chorale sings A Sea Symphony
First performed in 1910, A Sea Symphony stands as one of the composer’s first fully mature works. The text draws on the poetry of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and supports an analogy between the voyager on the sea and the voyage of the soul into the unknown. The work reflects the many moods of the sea and its influence on mankind.
Soloists are Julie Adams, soprano; and Brian Hotchkin, baritone.
The performance will be at First Presbyterian Church, 21 East Constance Ave., corner of State Street, Santa Barbara. Tickets are $22 general admission, $20 seniors and disabled, $12 college students with ID, and free for children in K-12. They can be purchased at Chaucer’s Bookstore, Eventbrite.com, www.sbmasterchorale.org, and at the door.
Guest Conductor Brent Wilson is Director of the Voice, Choral, and Opera/Musical Theater Department at Ventura College. He was previously Assistant Conductor/Chorus Master for Opera Santa Barbara.
