A COLLABORATIVE CONCERT FEATURING CONSTELLATION CHOIR AND BRIDGES, A STRING ORCHESTRA
Constellation Choir and Bridges, a string orchestra, come together to present “Awakening,” a concert of works for choir and strings on February 15, 2020 at Bainbridge Performing Arts, beginning at 7:30 pm.
The featured work on the program will be Sunrise Mass by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo. Conducted by Mario Alejandro Torres, the work takes us on a journey through lyrical, lush, evocative and stirring moments. The concert will also include works performed separately by Constellation Choir and Bridges.
In the fall of 2018 Stephanie Harris and Ginnilyn Hawkins attended the premiere performance of Bridges, an ensemble comprised of string players with the Bainbridge Symphony Orchestra. Inspired by Bridges’ performance, they decided to create a vocal ensemble that could perform a concert of vocal and string music with Bridges. The result was Constellation Choir, a mixed-voice ensemble dedicated to exploring the unique repertoire for voice and strings.

Sensory Access is a nonprofit organization creating amazing experiences for children with Sensory difficulties. We feel strongly that everyone should be able to enjoy the magic of theater, the thrill of a concert, or the joy of a theme park. Children on the Autism Spectrum, Down Syndrome, Fragile X, and many other neurodevelopmental disorders have difficulty processing sensory information, which often gets in the way of enjoying events with their families. Our staff will help find tools, tips and accommodations so that each family has the ability to enjoy events fully with their child. For theatre productions, Sensory Access certified Theatres receive social stories about the specific theatre, guidance on how to help guests enjoy the show, and breakdowns of sensory moments for each show in their season. Noise-reducing headphones and quiet fidgets are available to borrow.
Service animals that qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act are always welcome at BPA. Service animals must be leashed or harnessed at all times and must also remain quiet for the courtesy of our actors and patrons. Please alert the Box Office at the time of ticket purchase if you intend to bring a service animal so that we may ensure that proper seating is reserved for you.View less
