Music from Around the World Coming to the Triangle
Music is a universal language and on May 11th, Concert Singers of Cary will demonstrate that by performing a concert where nearly every song is in a different language and from more than a dozen different world cultures.
Under the direction of Lawrence Speakman, The Concert Singers of Cary is a 150 voice volunteer choral organization of accomplished vocal musicians. “This concert has a special meaning to us all,” said Speakman, “because the ability to communicate with people of various cultures is more important than ever. Music is one way to do that, and we celebrate this in the Earthsongs performance.”
Tickets are $15 for adults and $5.00 for children 12 and under and are available at the Cary Arts Center box office, either in-person 101 Dry Avenue, Cary, NC 27513, or online at: www.concertsingers.org , or at the door. The Earthsongs presentation will conclude the 2011-2012 concert series of The Concert Singers of Cary. The group is in its 21st season of performances and its first as a resident performing organization at The Cary Arts Center.

ABOUT US: Founded in 1991, The Concert Singers of Cary is a Volunteer Choral Organization that provides a professional experience for musicians and audiences alike. For twenty one years the organization has been challenging assumptions of what a vocational performing organization can accomplish. Under the leadership of co-founder, conductor and Artistic Director Lawrence Speakman, the Concert Singers of Cary operates a 130 voice Symphonic Chorus, a Vocal Chamber Ensemble and two youth choirs. Known for their innovative programming, The Concert Singers perform music from diverse traditions as well as new and ground breaking works such as Richard Einhorn’s Voices of Light, composed in 1995 and performed simultaneously with the 1928 silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc, and William Grant Still’s And They Lynched Him on a Tree, composed in 1939. www.concertsingers.org
