This fall, the Peninsula Women’s Chorus weaves a tapestry of sound from a collection of contemporary and classical works stitched together with mantras, chants, and meditations. Focusing on how we are drawn together as family, friends, and communities, and even as pen pals, the repertoire explores the beauty and struggle of relationships and the time and work underlying meaningful connection. Beginning with Ysaye Barnwell’s wise and moving “We Are,” we continue with Aaron Copland’s vision of our final gathering in “At the River,” and Felix Mendelssohn’s stately contemplation of our connection to the divine, “Laudate Pueri Dominum.” The concert then weaves mantras calling on connection with contemporary works by Pamela Z, Amy X Neuburg, Karen Siegel, Eve Beglarian, and Eva Ugalde Álvarez. This concert will showcase the premiere of our commission by Jennifer Wilsey, titled “Would You Like to Have It All?” detailing the beauty of female friendship by means of text gathered from PWC and crafted into a libretto by Lynn Marie Kirby and Denise Newman. We conclude the concert with holiday selections, including Flory Jagoda’s “Ocho Kandelikas,” a Ladino song celebrating a child’s joyful memories of Chanukah, followed by Joanna Mills’ “Unto Us a Child is Born,” a celebration of birth and peace, and ending with a boisterous celebration of gathering found in The Highwomen’s “The Crowded Table.”
