***Original story posted on Tuesday, May 10.***
The Waimea Consort will play a set of concerts this month, beginning at 7 p.m. on May 20 at the University of Hawai’i at Hilo’s UCB 127 and then moving on to the Hawai’i Preparatory Academy Chapel in Waimea on May 22 at 2 p.m.
Both of the concerts are open to the public free of charge.
In the concerts, the Waimea Consort will play pairs of songs that either share the same lyrics or some other commonality. Despite the song being different from each other, they will both be unique and are expressions of each composer’s style.
Selections include a singing version of Ubi Caritas by contemporary composer Ola Gjeilo and another by 20th century French composer Maurice Durufle.
In addition, two versions of Psalm 96 will be sung, one in French and another in Latin.
Other works will include compositions by Eric Whitacre and Morten Lauridsen.
