Huntsville Master Chorale to premiere three works commissioned for concerts in celebration of Earth Day

The Huntsville Master Chorale, Huntsville's longest-singing auditioned choral ensemble, will present world premieres of three works commissioned for its concerts in Huntsville and Madison, on Friday, April 22, and Sunday, April 24. 

The concerts will feature J. D. Frizzell's setting of "If I Could See You, Wind," a poem by the late Dorothy Diemer Hendry, a beloved English teacher at Huntsville High School. Both the Hendry setting and a setting of the Emily Dickinson poem, "Upon a Wheel of Cloud," have already been accepted for publication by Heritage Music Press.

The fresh choral creations will be presented in concerts that also celebrate the visual works of Huntsville-area student artists in celebration of Earth Day.

The "Let the Earth Sing!" concerts are free, with donations accepted at the door. The concert on Friday begins at 7 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 301 Drake Ave. SE, in Huntsville. Sunday's concert, which begins at 3 p.m., will be held at Messiah Lutheran Church, 7740 U. S. 72 West in Madison. 

Directed by Dr. Patricia Ramirez-Hacker, the Huntsville Master Chorale is gaining a regional reputation for choral artistry, for supporting the work of living composers, and for performing little-heard choral works, both experimental and classical.

The works by J. D. Frizzell, who is based in Memphis, and by local composer Dennis Clements were commissioned by the chorale with help from grants from the Jane K. Lowe Foundation and the Huntsville Arts and Cultural Grants Program.
