“The Long Bright” Brings a Close to Our 20th Anniversary Year

Women’s Voices Chorus made history again on Friday, May 16, with the southeastern premiere of Andrea Clearfield’s “The Long Bright” cantata. Playing to a full audience, WVC, along with a 23 piece orchestra and soloist Susan Hellman, brought down the house with a program dedicated to celebrating the beauty of life and the pain of illness and death.

Harrison Russin of CVNC.org was in attendance and had this to say of the cantata: “This music is beyond the bounds usually sought by community choruses, but Women’s Voices Chorus seemed to delight in the challenge of its complexity. … Clearfield, who was in the audience for the performance, can only be pleased with the impact her music has had on both the musicians and the audience.” For more of his review, click here.

We’d like to thank everyone who made our 20th anniversary year such a success – the musicians who performed with us, the composers who let us use their works, the sponsors who keep us going year after year, but most of all, all our wonderful fans who turned out for this concert and all of our other concerts.  We couldn’t do it without you!
