For its final concert of the season, Simple Measures is joined by the Seattle Girls’ Choir top choir, Prime Voci, and SGC’s Artistic Director, Jacob Winkler. The beautiful, clear sound of the choir will be interspersed with and sometimes accompanied by Simple Measures musicians – Arthur Girsky, Natasha Bazhanov and Michael Jinsoo Lim, violins; Arie Schachter, viola; and Rajan Krishnaswami, cello with SGC’s Ruth Draper on piano. The first half will include lighthearted American music (Gershwin, Copland, Randall Thompson), some of Dvorak’s “American” string quartet and Barber’s Adadio for Strings. The second half will feature movements from Stabat Mater by Italian Baroque composer G.B. Pergolesi.
