​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.

 Shasta College Theatre; Admission: $8 General; $6 Seniors & Students w/ID
 
 
The Shasta College Vocal Institute will be presenting a concert of opera scenes and arias on
Thursday evening, August 11, at 7:00 p.m. in the Shasta College theater.  The concert is the
final presentation of the Vocal Institute, a three-week intensive training program for high school
and college age singers and actors.  The Institute brings together former students of the college
who have gone on to achieve success in the world of vocal music with the next generation of
serious students. 
 
This year the Institute staff has included former Shasta College student Nicole Woodward, a graduate of the prestigious San Francisco Opera Merola Program.  The concert is open to the public, and will feature scenes from four operas.  Two of them are by American composers: "Susannah" by Carlisle Floyd and "The Ballad of Baby Doe" by Douglas Moore.  The other scenes are from Bizet's "The Pearl Fishers" and Offenbach's "The Tales of Hoffmann."  The evening will close with a revue of some wonderfully comic pieces from the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, "The Mikado."  All will be under the baton of Robert Waterbury, Director of the Vocal Institute.  Tickets are available in advance online through the college website at shastacollege.edu, or at the door for $8.00 general admission, and $6.00 for students and seniors.
