Skylark: It's A Long Way

1:00:23

Experience what is sure to be an unforgettable return to the concert hall for this multi GRAMMY Nominated ensemble! Recently nominated for Best Choral Performance (GRAMMY Awards 2022), It’s a Long Way explores the collective experience of Skylark members living through the 19 months since their last concert together. For all of us it has been a time of great disruption, of isolation, of fear, and of loss. It has also been a time for reflection, for hope, for growth, and for action. In addition to pieces arranged for choir, half a dozen Skylark singers are featured as soloists in a concert that explores a wide range of musical styles – renaissance polyphony, traditional folksongs, modern choral compositions, solo songs for voice, romantic lieder, and even a classic jazz standard. It’s a Long Way was recorded in the summer of 2021, with 26 artists taking part in this innovative presentation that is believed to be the ensemble's finest yet.
