The Kaleidoscope Ensemble in Concert

When we hear “Once upon a time…” at the beginning of a story we expect to be transported to another time and place, where wondrous things can happen.  It requires from us an active imagination and a willingness to depart, if only for a little while, from our normal daily existence.  Kaleidoscope, the 36-voice select ensemble of MOS, recognized for its eclectic and creative programming, will take you on such a journey as it presents Once Upon a Time: Songs of Imagination.

Be prepared for typical Kaleidoscope programming that will span centuries and musical styles, yet all exploring the world of imagination.  Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory will set the tone, but you will also hear Vineta by Johannes Brahms, which tells of a mythical city on the edge of the Baltic Sea.  Expect music by Irving Fine, John Rutter, Eric Whitacre, and Ola Gjeilo, all with themes that will spark your imagination.  Certainly a concert such as this would not be complete without music from Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods which interweaves the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales.
