Origins, October 5

Our 50th season begins with music of creation. The Seattle Girls Choir  — along with soloists Jessica Robins Milanese, Sarah Mattox, Les Green and Ryan Bede —  join OSSCS and conductor William White for trailblazing composer Carol Sams’ epic masterpiece, The Earthmakers, an oratorio that recounts creation stories from a multitude of world cultures. We also feature La création du monde, a jazzy work by Sams’ teacher, Darius Milhaud, as well as the world premiere of local composer Carlos Garcia’s fanfare for chorus and orchestra, Vast Array.
