The Cascade Singers present “A Parker-Shaw Christmas” Saturday, Dec. 7, 7 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 8, 3 p.m.
The holiday concert is at Zion Lutheran Church, 10th and Union Streets, in The Dalles.
The late Robert Shaw was one of the preeminent choral directors of the second half of the 20th century.
Alice Parker was Shaw’s student, who began her own career arranging music for the Robert Shaw Chorale. She later led her own choirs and continues to compose and arrange music at age 94. The Parker-Shaw collaboration produced a rich body of choral music, often based on folk tunes and hymns.
The concert will feature Christmas carols and also include J.S. Bach chorales and a piece for organ and choir from the romantic era. Admission is by donation at the door.
