All The Earth, Sing As One

Saturday March 3 @ 7:30 pm

What can make your heart race yet bring peace to your soul at the same time? Glorious music, sung by 60 specially blended voices accompanied by a seventeen-piece chamber orchestra. These voices raised in song proclaim “Be joyful with dance and song. Be joyful and share that joy with each other.”

The Chorale presents All The Earth, Sing As One with four shorter works by Palestrina, Gabrieli, Clausen, and Wilberg – all titled Jubilate Deo or O Be Joyful – followed by Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo, a multi-movement work for chorus and orchestra.

All The Earth, Sing As One features a seventeen-piece chamber orchestra comprised of top classical musicians from around the Valley.  The musicians will accompany the Chorale for Dan Forrest’s beautiful piece, Jubilate Deo, which brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text by setting it in seven different languages and drawing from a wide spectrum of musical influences.

Each movement of Jubilate Deo combines musical characteristics of a different language and culture with the composer’s own musical language. These include liturgical Latin, intertwined Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, Spanish, and a closing movement combining several of these languages with English.

The result is a stunning global celebration of joy, as all the earth sings as one, “omnis terra, jubilate!” Make your plans now to enjoy this special concert with the Chorale

“Your beautiful concert soothed my soul and brought peace to my heart. You are marvelous!”
