The Cal Poly Pomona Music Department proudly presents the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation's Sing for the Cure: A Proclamation of Hope.
The University Concert Choir and Kellogg Chamber Singers with Chamber Ensemble, directed by Professor Iris Levine, will perform May 16 and 17, at 8 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall.
Proceeds will benefit the Robert and Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center at the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center.
Sing for the Cure is a unique musical experience that touches hearts, moves spirits and sings a story of hope and healing for people with breast cancer and their loved ones. It shares the personal experiences of breast cancer survivors, their partners and their loved ones.
Librettist Pamela Martin interviewed scores of people whose unique stories comprise the narration and lyrics for 10 songs set to the music of 10 composers, each of whom have been affected by breast cancer in some way. The song cycle is arranged for mixed chorus and chamber ensemble. Its effect is universal: both performers and audience members alike experience the pain of facing death and the hope of life that is so real for all who make the journey.
