When a child sings, a wish gets wings.

from “If Wishes Had Wings” by Paul Caldwell and Sean Ivory

Claim some wishes as your own as Strathmore Children’s Chorus (SCC) returns to the Music Center this winter. Hear the 6 ensembles of SCC perform music of hope by Native American, Hebrew, South American, and African American composers and arrangers.

Highlights include Deanna Wehrspann’s composition for “Hope Is the Thing with Feathers” by Emily Dickinson, Allan Naplan’s “Shiru,” Rollo Dilworth’s “Shine on Me,” William Skoog’s arrangement of the Muscogee (Creek) melody “Heleluyan,” Heitor Villa-Lobos’ “Estrella E Lua Nova,” and Rosephanye Powell’s setting of the Langston Hughes poem, “I Dream a World.”
