Sunday February 24th, 3:00pm, Choral Masterworks Concert Ticket Price $12 online, $15 at the door The Choral Masterworks Concert is the largest collaborative concert for the Oak Lawn Community High School Choral Department to date. Choirs from OLCHS will be partnering with Shepard High School choirs and the renowned professional choir, Cor Cantiamo, to perform “The Seven Heavens” by British composer, James Whitbourn. This multi-movement work is scored for chamber choir and seven instrumentalists and portrays the life of C. S. Lewis in the imagery of the medieval planets. The concert program will feature each ensemble performing their own concert set as well as the combined performance of all three ensembles performing "The Seven Heavens." Cor Cantiamo established this educational outreach program to introduce aspiring High School Singers to choral & orchestral masterworks in a professional setting. During the project the High School Choir has the opportunity to rehearse and perform side by side with the professional singers of Cor Cantiamo. During the rehearsal process members of Cor Cantiamo provide individualized mentoring of the high school students, regarding all matters ranging from rehearsal etiquette to life as a professional singer. The final outcome of the project is a performance of a great choral work presented by the combined forces of Cor Cantiamo and the High School choirs.
