In the warm, tropical climate of South Florida we are almost always safe from the biting, icy wind that whips through Russian forests, chills the moors of the British Isle, and leaves us longing for the comfort of home and the warmth of the holiday season.
This December, all ensembles of the Girl Choir of South Florida will explore the myriad ways that composers and poets describe the “Winter’s Wind,” centering on Shakespeare’s depiction of winter in his famous song “Blow, Blow Thou Winter Wind” as we perform two compositions with this same text. Together, we find that this frosty wind brings songs of “Angels We Have Heard on High,” the bare “Tundra” of Norway, and even illness in the punny “Cold and Fugue Season” based on Bach’s “Fugue in G Minor.”
Join us as celebrate the winter season in an exploration of the theme of wind: a thread of the unseen, the unknowable, and the unpredictable.
