Taylor Festival Choir
Sunday, May 4, 2014, at 4 pm
Charleston, SC (March 31, 2014) – The internationally renowned Taylor Festival Choir (TFC), led by founder Dr. Robert Taylor, will present an afternoon of festive English and American choral music in a program entitled “Last Night of the Proms” 4pm, May 4, at Grace Episcopal Church.
Inspired by the famed concerts that close the BBC Proms concerts in London, England, each summer, the Taylor Festival Choir will perform a variety of British and American choral music, ranging from “war horse” Anglican anthems such as Parry’s “I Was Glad” and Handel’s Coronation anthem “Let Thy Hand Be Strengthened” to folk songs such as “Loch Lomond” and “Rocky Road to Dublin” to the famed but rarely performed anthem “Spem in Allium”, written for 40 voice parts by Elizabethan composer Thomas Tallis.
TFC will be joined by the Ashley River Creative Arts Elementary Unichorus as they present American and English patriotic songs, including God Bless America, Land of Hope and Glory, and America the Beautiful. The afternoon will also feature the acclaimed cellist Natalia Khoma, who will join TFC for the recently deceased John Tavener’s “Svyati”, a funeral anthem for choir and cello.
Tickets can be purchased at the door, or by going to www.taylormusicgroup.net.
