"On Wings of Song", the 2018 Spring Concert of the Salt Lake Children's Choir will be on May 11 & 12, 7:30 P.M. at St. Ambrose Catholic Church.

Tickets are also available from your favorite choir member or through Eventbrite

This concert, titled “On Wings of Song,” will feature Felix Mendelssohn’s much-loved work by that name, as well as Johann Sebastian Bach’s immortal “Sheep May Safely Graze,” Henry Purcell’s “Sound the Trumpet,” and the transcendent “Im Abendroth” (In Evening Glow) by Franz Schubert, Also heard will be “Die Norske Fjelde” (the Norwegian Mountains”) by Edvard Grieg, the evocative “Mountain Nights” by Hungarian master, Zoltan Kodály, charming music of Scotland and Slovakia–and two beautiful songs from the choir’s private collection of Ukrainian and Russian music (given to the director by a graduate of the Kiev Music Academy). The choir will also sing Woodward’s “Who Has Seen the Wind?,” E. Poldini’s captivating “Dancing Doll,” and will continue it’s long tradition of performing music with Latin American ties with its own “Little Flower” (featuring guest violinist, Everett Petersen) and the Andean favorite, “El Humahuaqueño” (Carnavalito). Following the singing of the Native American “Zuni Planting Song,” combined choirs will join in the ever-popular “Sing” by Joe Raposo. The evening will then conclude with the choir’s own “Evening Prayer” and the traditional “A Day in Spring.”
