The Salt Lake Children’s Choir, Ralph B. Woodward, Artistic Director, will present its 33rd annual spring concert on Mothers’ Day Weekend, Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11 at 7:30 PM in the First Presbyterian Church (South Temple and C Street). In addition to its angelic sound and artistry, the choir is widely known for the extraordinary scope of its repertoire, and the coming performances are no exception–as they will, musically speaking, “bring the world to Salt Lake City.” The program will include music of the Italian Renaissance, the German Art Song and charming folk songs from the British Isles, Scandinavia, Central and Southern Europe and the Americas.–including Robert Schumann’s sublime “Moonlit Night,” “Sweet Woodlark” from Scotland (on a text by Robert Burns), “Varmland” from Sweden, “Anicka dusicka” from Slovakia, the electrifying huapango, “Las Amarillas” from Chiapas, Mexico, and “Zuni Sunrise” by Laughing Eyes,” Edaackie. Also heard will be Gerald Finzi’s charming “Rosy Maiden Winifred,” Woodward’s own evocative “Canto al Sol,” the calypso, “Down by the Seashore” and the sentimental favorite, “When It’s Springtime in the Rockies.” The evening will conclude with the choir’s traditional “A Day in Spring”
