Constellation Choir and Bridges present ‘Awakening’ at BPA

Constellation Choir and Bridges, a string orchestra, will come together to present “Awakening,” a winter concert of works for choir and strings at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 15 at Bainbridge Performing Arts.

The featured work on the program will be “Sunrise Mass” by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo.

Conducted by Mario Alejandro Torres, the piece takes audience members on a lyrical journey through lush, evocative, and stirring moments.

The concert will also include works performed separately by Constellation Choir and Bridges.

In the fall of 2018, Stephanie Harris and Ginnilyn Hawkins attended the premiere performance of Bridges, an ensemble comprised of string players with the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra. Inspired by Bridges’ performance, they decided to create a vocal ensemble that could perform a concert of vocal and string music with Bridges. The result was Constellation Choir, a mixed-voice ensemble dedicated to exploring the unique repertoire for voice and strings.

Admission is by donations ($20 per person suggested).

Children and students, ages 18 and under are urged to attend for free.

Proceeds will benefit the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra.
