Overview

Director Roxanne Martel has blended many genres and musical cultures on the theme of Paradise, from the classical contemplation of In Paradisum and Lux AEterna to the Gershwins’ exuberant show tune I’ll Build a Stairway to Paradise. Along the way, we will knock on Heaven’s door with Bob Dylan and take a look at the kind of world we are creating in Joni Mitchell’s Big Yellow Taxi and Phil Collins’s Another Day in Paradise. Traditional gospels take us across the Deep River and Up Yonder, while lullabies from India and Wales soothe us into safety and sleep. Overall, our musical journey is a celebration of the beauties of nature in the created world and our many gifts of life. We are pleased to feature gifted jazz pianist Chad Linsley as our accompanist, and invited musical guests complete the evening’s entertainment.
