The Alaska Chamber Singers, with musical director David Hagen, present “Darwin Sings: The Evolution of Choral Music” at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Mariner Theatre. The Homer High School Concert Choir makes a special appearance. The concert explores the history of Western choral music from chant and organum of the Dark Ages through the Renaissance, Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras and into the 20th century and beyond. Tickets are $12 adults, $10 seniors and $7 students with proceeds benefitting the Homer High School Concert Choir.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation to The Homer Farmers Market Board of Directors, for their decision to include us (L.O.V.E. Local Organic Vegetables and Edibles) as a recipient of the 2013 HFM grant.
The Roustabout Circus performs at 7 p.m. Friday at the Christian Community Church on Bartlett Street. The circus has been conducting student workshops this week. Admission is by “pass the hat” donation.
In the grand arc of Mark Robinson’s teaching and musical career, Johannes Brahms’ “Requiem” serves as a personal touchstone from singing it at age 15 in high school choir to conducting it in a new performance this week.
“It’s a long history for me personally,” Robinson said of the choral work.
