Copland's In the Beginning

Cindy will appear at the mezzo soloist with the esteemed Centenary  College of Louisiana Camerata, under the direction of Dr. Cory Wikan, in Aaron Copland's In the Beginning, November 16, 7:30 p.m., at the Hurley School of Music. 

In the Beginning is one of Copland's three a capella works for chorus. Based on the text of Genesis 1:1 through 2:7, with the mezzo soloist acting as a narrator  --- usually unaccompanied --- to the chorus' chant-like refrains. The harmonic language' open intervals, so characteristic o Copland's work, is hymnlike, with gentle blues and jazz references. 

 The concert is free and open to the public.
