Featuring Concert Group, Choral Scholars, and Young Men’s Ensemble with special guests Avanti
Ragazzi Boys Chorus will present the jubilant spring concert Created for Joy! Commemorating its 35th Anniversary, the acclaimed chorus will perform a stunning new piece commissioned by Ragazzi, “I Was Created For Joy” by internationally-renowned composer/conductor Dr. Andrea Ramsey with text based on a poem by 14th Century Persian poet Hafiz. This concert features three songs by female composers, including Ramsey, Elaine Hagenberg, and Mary Goetze, in honor of Ragazzi’s co-founder Joyce Keil. Led by Artistic and Executive Director Kent Jue, Ragazzi’s Concert Group, Choral Scholars, Young Men’s Ensemble, and Avanti choruses will celebrate the joy, comradery, and brotherhood built by boys singing together in this afternoon of magnificent music.
