​The 40-voice Shasta College Chorale, under the direction of Elizabeth Waterbury, will be presenting a concert of three enjoyable and contemporary choral works on May 14, a Saturday night in the Shasta College Theatre. Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo’s recent composition, “The Lake Isle,” creates a new balance between popular song and atmospheric choral music, accompanied by strings, piano and classical guitar. The text is the famous poem by William Butler Yeats called, “The Lake Isle of Innisfree”. The second work is the choral suite, “Jubilate” by English composer Bob Chilcott.  Beloved local singer Pedro Betancourt will sing the famous solo, accompanied by the Chorale and Ellen Southard on piano.  Classical guitar student Sage Mitchell will perform a solo. Finally, the third choral work is the work commissioned for the International Choral Federation, “Cantate Domino” by Basque composer Josu Elberdin.
