GUEST DIRECTOR J. Edmund Hughes
From Renaissance-era songs to “A Shakespeare Suite,” the RainShadow Chorale will offer “Music for the Heart & Soul” tonight and Sunday at two Port Townsend venues.
The conductor also is including a variety of other works, from gospel songs to Gregorian chant — pieces to “get us in touch with our emotions and our spirits,” he said.
At these concerts, listeners will hear songs inspired by many sources: the Catholic Mass, a story by Rudyard Kipling and the poetry of e.e. cummings and Edna St. Vincent Millay.
