Coming to Port Townsend, November 2019!!!
RainShadow Chorale is pleased to announce an exciting collaboration for our fall concerts on November 16 and 17, 2019. Jake Runestad, a world-renowned composer and conductor, has accepted our invitation to come to Pt. Townsend to work with us on his new composition, “The Secret of the Sea,” written for chorus, piano, string quartet, and percussion. Jake will conduct that piece and another of his works in our performances. He has collaborated with leading ensembles throughout the world and we are thrilled that RainShadow will join that group. RainShadow has performed several of his works in past concerts and they are among our favorites.
Considered a ‘choral rock star’ by American Public Media, Jake is one of the most frequently performed and commissioned composers of choral music in the world, having “…a particular knack for marrying powerful music to texts that speak to some of the most pressing and moving issues of our time” (Star Tribune). This is an extraordinary opportunity for RainShadow to work closely with a composer of his caliber. And we know the whole community will be enriched by the experience.
RainShadow Chorale is actively raising money for this special event, which will cost about $7000 to produce.
We invite you to help us reach that goal by making a donation.
Your tax-deductible contribution can be mailed to: RainShadow Chorale, PO Box 1806, Pt. Townsend, WA 98368.
