Arlington's Mystic Chorale invites all to celebrate people's connections to each other in "ARISE!" on Friday, June 10. The concert will take place at 8 p.m. at Cary Hall, 630 Mass. Ave., Lexington.
In his penultimate season before moving to Missouri next winter after 32 years with Mystic Chorale, much-beloved founder and artistic director, Nick Page will lead a performance that promises to lift the audience members' spirits and souls.
This concert is sure to be both exhilarating and stirring as the group starts to bid Nick farewell.
The program begins with a rousing Glory Glory and closes with a triumphant Pass Me Not. Wonder and joy fill the concert songs ranging from Joseph Shabalala’s Moon is Walking to Nick’s powerful arrangement of Linda Hirschhorn’s setting of Lo V'Chayil (Not By Might, But With Love), with lift-us-to-the-sky percussion.
Drums are also central to a rousing South African Haleluya. Fittingly, the chorus will sing A Parting Glass, a Celtic song of farewell.
The chorus is joined by Arlington's amazing Louise Grasmere on vocals plus the great Donnell Patterson, who leads two inspirational songs.
Mystic is thrilled to be singing live again, but during these times of Covid, its #1 priority is the health and safety of all. Accordingly, all present at the concert will be required to show proof of full vaccination and wear masks.
Tickets are $20 (in person) and $10 (live stream) -- all available at mysticchorale.org.
