The Olympic Girls’ Choir and the Bainbridge Island Youth Orchestra join forces for the first time in presenting this performance, which will feature a work written especially for them by Artistic Director of the Bainbridge Chorale, Michael Miller.
The concert will be co-directed by Tigran Arakelyan, Director of the youth orchestra, and Laura Milleson, Director of the girls choir, who are both looking forward to this opportunity for their ensembles to perform together.
About this event,Tigran says:
“I am very excited for the collaboration with the Olympic Girls’ Choir. I am a big proponent of collaborations between arts organizations and truly believe that the future of arts in the 21st century is in our unified collaborative projects.
This collaboration is special because there aren’t too many piece written for string orchestra and choir, especially for our youth. This is a joint commission composed by accomplished musician Michael Miller who wrote this piece with our groups in mind. Lastly and most importantly, this creates an opportunity for our youth to learn and grow through this experience.”
“I believe that excellence in music comes by helping others find joy in the entire process. In Let Us All Make Music, the choir proclaims “For we know the power of music. We can change the world one note at a time – whether played on our instruments or sung in clever rhyme.” We believe that this experience of making music together will create an opportunity for our youth to learn and grow. We look forward to sharing the results of their collaboration with the community.”
