The Choral Arts Society of Southeastern Wisconsin (CAS) will present RETRO. Music from past CAS concerts and reflections by CAS members and friends will be woven together for this unique presentation. This video will be premiered on the CAS YouTube channel on Friday, October 30, 2020 at 7 PM. A video-conference “afterglow” will follow. The presentation will be offered free of charge, but donations would be appreciated.
RETRO will feature works by local composers Antonio Rodrigues-Pavao and Karel Suchy. CAS has worked closely with these composers, and premiered some of their compositions. The community will be able to enjoy their music again online. Pavao’s “sam was a man” enhances the text’s poignancy and humor. Suchy’s “Sound Poems Inspired by Nosferatu” will set the mood for Halloween weekend.
People close to CAS, including current and past board presidents, will present comments on the chorus and on their personal involvement. Artistic Director James Schatzman will include his remarks, and will be available for conversation during the video chat.
Despite the pandemic, CAS is committed to furthering its mission to present works by living composers and choral masterworks. In 2020-2021 CAS will create opportunities to connect with its audience and bring the beauty of the arts to your home.
