Many Moons - BVS Women's Choir Spring Concert 2019

About this Event

Join us on lucky April 13, 2019 at 7:00 PM for our next concert. Many Moons marks the passing of time and cycles of change.

This concert will be the last with our founding artistic director Jessica Corbin at the helm. For the past 17 years, her creativity and vision has led BVS Women’s Choir to take on ambitious repertoire and collaborations. She grew BVS from a high school girls choir to an intergenerational women's choir that has performed not only in New York, but also in El Paso, Seattle, and Portland, building relationships with communities in Brooklyn as well as other women's choirs, performers, and composers. Join us this spring to celebrate the years Corbin has led BVS, and her evolving but consistent commitment to performing work written for women's voices, often by living women composers.

Many Moons invites us to look toward the cosmos and express gratitude for the natural and spiritual worlds, and the constant yet changing presence of the moon, which is both reliable and wondrous. The program features work by composers Joan Szymko, Jocelyn Hagen, Kala Pierson, Gwyneth Walker, and J. David Moore, with pieces including the traditional spiritual My Lord, What a Morning and an exaltation of the moon goddess by Enheduanna, a Sumerian priestess who lived in 2300 BC. The program reflects on divine forces and faith, as well as friendship, love, and music.
