Church hymns, love songs, the lullabies we sing to our children: each of these are artistic expressions inspired by, and based on, poetry. But poetry’s impact isn’t just limited to the arts. Today, many different individuals and groups are using poetry to aid organizational and community development efforts. To explore the different ways poetry is making itself present in our modern society, we’re complementing our usual end of season performances with a day-long series of TED-style talks. Each will showcase how different communities and organizations are using poetry and music to deepen their mission impact, aid healing and improve working relationships.

This spring, Choral Arts NW reprises the revised version of this concert-length oratorio for choir with vocal soloists and chamber orchestra composed by CANW’s 2016-17 Composer-in-Residence, John Muehleisen.
This work commemorates the centennial of World War I by focusing on the historical account of Lieutenant John Kipling’s 1915 death at the Battle of Loos, and its impact on his famous parents, Rudyard and Carrie Kipling. The narrative touches on a number of issues relevant to our own time, and places special focus on the challenges faced by warriors and their families.

Combined Choirs of St. James Cathedral - A Service of Readings and Carols
Dr. Paul Thornock, Music Director
Joseph Adam, Cathedral Organist
St. James Cathedral presents our annual Service of Readings and Carols. In the soft glow of candlelight, readings from Holy Scripture tell of the coming of Christ’s birth while Cathedral musicians perform music for the Advent season, illuminating and elevating the story. Featuring the Cathedral Choir, Women’s Schola, Jubilate Young Women's Ensemble, Schola Cantorum, and the Cathedral Brass.
Choral Arts NW presents a holiday program that is intended to be as much a contemplation of the season as it is a concert: a musical respite from what is usually a very harried time of year. With classical guitarist Bob McCaffery-Lent, Choral Arts NW weaves a seamless musical meditation that provides the opportunity to close our eyes and embrace with our ears the quiet peace of Christmas.
