Roger Anderson Chorale Announces 2018 season

Launching the second season of North County’s newest choral group.

Encinitas CA— In March of 2018, the Roger Anderson Chorale will hold the second in its concert series. An eclectic variety of music will be performed including African-American Spirituals, contemporary composers, classical excerpts and world beat. The chorale appears with a variety of performance artists including modern dance, visual media and percussionists.

Season Highlights

  • Spiritual: “My Soul’s Been Anchored By The Lord”.  In 1939, Marion Anderson closed her historic concert at the Lincoln Center with this vibrant song.
  • Contempory: “Drumsound Rises.” American composer Daniel Elder uses influences from electronic dance music with its repetitive beat to set Rumi’s mystical poem to music.
  • World Beat: “Baba Yetu”. The Grammy award winning Baba Yetu is back by popular demand.
  • Classical: “Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves” (from Guiseppe Verdi’s opera Nabucco).  A timeless favorite.
