Choral Essence Announces 2010 Concert Season
The 2010 Concert Season opens with a new theme song! "Side by Side," composed by Harry Woods and arranged by Jack Litten is a unique arrangement, pitting a sophisticated madrigal against a groove swing style. Choral Essence claims this unique work with its own vocal imprint with new jazz concepts and a "cool" sound. It speaks to the group about how they are 'side by side' in the missiong of outreach to the community and in their common bond to achieve musical excellence.
