The St. Louis Chamber Chorus presents Swimming Over London on Sunday, October 6, at 3 pm. "Join the Saint Louis Chamber Chorus for the opening of Barnes' 31st year and another season of inspired choral music. Bob Chilcott's piece Swimming Over London inspires the theme, which is designed to suit the concert's venue. Now an African American masonic lodge, Masonic Prince Hall Grand originally housed a swimming pool! In addition to Chilcott's piece, the repertoire explores the motif of water in legends of submerged cities (Brahms and Edgar Bainton), to music that evokes lakes and rivers in England, Scotland and Poland in part songs celebrating the Thames (Arthur Bliss), Loch Lomond (Vaughan Williams), and the Vistula (Henryk Górecki)." The concert takes place at the Masonic Prince Hall Grand Lodge, 4525 Olive in Midtown. For more information: www.chamberchorus.org.
