Sounds of Stow Chorus & Orchestra
Sounds of Stow Chorus & Orchestra is sponsoring James Dargan, a frequent baritone soloist with our group, in a free livestream concert on Sunday, October 25, at 3pm, accompanied by pianist Mark Whitlock. Join us to hear James’s newly created program, "Oh Glory 2" (OG2). The program, which is tailored to this important moment in our lives, will range from pieces by Duke Ellington and Moses Hogan to Mr. Dargan's own compositions.
In Mr. Dargan's words, “While the first 'Oh Glory' was all about showing the silliness of musical and racial boxes, ‘OG2' is all about exploring the different facets within the ‘box’ of Black composers, and the differing viewpoints on Blackness in the poetry they set to music. I hope that the complexity and variety of these songs shows that again, boxes are silly, in music and in life. I invite my audience to explore and break free along with me.”
Information on how to join this livestreamed event will be available on our website, www.soundsofstow.org.
