“In Primavera” features Belle Voci, an intergenerational women’s choir, as well as Solo Voci, a smaller a cappella choir, and Giovanni Voci, a new choir for girls ages 8 to 14. The program showcases a variety of songs ranging from classical to traditional to pop, such as “Stabat Mater,” one of Pergolesi's most celebrated sacred works, “Tongo,” a Polynesian canoe song with hand claps and percussion, and “L’dor Vador,” a hauntingly beautiful melody reminiscent of a Jewish folk song based on a Hebrew text.

The concert also features Ivette Herryman’s Sigue,” a lively selection in Spanish characteristic of Cuban rhythms and harmonies, Greg Jasperse’s “Voice Dance,” celebrating the human voice with open vowel sounds, Stephen Schwartz’ “For Good,” from the Broadway musical “Wicked,” and Rosephayne Powell’s “Still I Rise,” a gospel style composition inspired by the poetry of Maya Angelou.

Belle Voci is a community-based intergenerational women's choir with a mission to enrich and educate its singers and its audiences, by performing varied repertoire that features challenging compositions in wide-ranging musical styles and diverse languages, by composers from around the world. www.bellevocipgh.com
