The Camerata Singers of Long Beach

On Sunday, February 11th at 4:00pm I attended the Camerata Singers of Long Beach concert entitled A Winter Meditation: Wind, Rain, Heaven, and Sky. The event was located at the Convenant Presbyterian Church in Long Beach. The singers are under the musical direction of Dr. Jonathan Talberg.

The Camerata Singers of Long Beach provided an enjoyable program with a variety of music that showcases the group's range of talent and skilled repetoire - from a beautiful rendition of the traditional Danny Boy to the complex tempo shifts found in The Hymn to St. Cecelia (Benjamin Britten) to the powerful African-American spiritual by William Dawson entitled Soon Ah Will Be Done.

The Camerata Singers of Long Beach are a pleasure to listen to, their broad selection and talent ensures a little something for everyone. Their next performance is at the Carpenter Center, CSULB Lower Campus on Sunday, April 15, 2007 4:00pm.
