The Legacy Chorale of Greater Minnesota – Wanting Memories – Tornstrom Auditorium
April 14 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm
“Wanting Memories — Worldwide Songs of the Journey Called Life”
“I am sitting here wanting memories to teach me to see the beauty in the world through my own eyes.” These words, written by American composer Ysaye Barnwell for her now-famous piece, inspired the theme for The Legacy Chorale’s Spring 2019 Concert Series. Songs that lead us from despair to hope, doubt to faith, and hatred to love comprise a program filled with inspirational melodies from around the globe, including: “Spiritual,” also written by Barnwell; a Swahili adaptation of The Lord’s Prayer entitled “Baba Yetu” (from the Video Game Civilization IV); an exciting choral arrangement of Carly Simon’s hit, “Let the River Run;” “Famine Song,’ which features body percussion that mimics the sounds of rain; Leonard Cohen’s beautiful “Hallelujah;” and many more, including folk songs and spirituals.
**Free will donations accepted at the door and/or on our website at https://legacychorale.org/contribute/
**These concerts are also made possible in part by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Five Wings Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
