The Northwest Repertory Singers will give voice to some of life’s richest moments at their upcoming concert, “Songs of Love, Lust, and Laughter.” And just as those moments pass too quickly for all of us, so did the past season for fans of this highly acclaimed vocal ensemble. Their final performance for the 2012-1013 season takes place at 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 19, at Mason United Methodist Church in Tacoma’s Proctor District, the last chance to enjoy their stirring music until October. You won't want to miss this one, especially considering the delightful theme.
The ensemble’s Artistic Director Dr. Paul Schultz gave me some enticing details:

"This concert closes a terrific 2012-2013 season and has something for everyone. The Songs of Love include Brahms' Liebeslieder Waltzes for piano four-hands and my wife, Donna Gartman Schultz, joins accompanist Marjorie Skreen as the third and fourth hands. Songs of Lust are covered by selections from section three of the very popular Carmina Burana (The Court of Love). I will guarantee you'll leave laughing after a couple visits from PDQ Bach and songs carrots and rutabagas by Seattle's John Muehleisen."
Schultz will present a lecture between 2 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., before the performance begins, to offer background and enhance your experience of the choral music you’ll hear. With his warm and charming personality, his talks always entertain as much as they enlighten.

Surprise, delight, and occasional laughter make every Northwest Repertory Singers a thrill to attend. After hearing a vocal music performance of such unsurpassed quality and beauty, you will leave reminded that, in spite of all the turmoil in the world, we were meant to live with joy.
