Heartland Voices | Through Music, the Heart Soars, 21 Dec 2010 [cached]
"It all started out with wanting to have a celebration of John Rutter's 65th birthday in 2010," said Dr. John G. Slawson, the Artistic Director, Principal Conductor, and founder of Heartland Voices.
"I wanted to have a nice cross-section of (Rutter's) pieces that the audience would really recognize" said Slawson, "and then some very good Rutter works that people probably don't know," he said referring to such pieces as Rutter's lesser known "Ave Maria" and "My True Love Hath My Heart" from his Birthday Madrigals.
"The Whitacre piece is just going to be a kind of a surprise in the middle of the concert," said Slawson about "little man in a hurry," based on poetry by ee cummings.
Heartland Voices is led by Dr. John G. Slawson, Professor of Music and Director of Choral Studies at Elgin Community College.
