The Davis Children’s Chorale, under the direction of Tania Mannion, has several concerts coming up, and will be accepting new members through the end of February.

On Sunday, Feb. 9, at 4 p.m., the Chorale will sing one piece with the Sacramento-based Camerata California — the West Coast premiere of “In the Arms of Music,” an original score by composer Matthew Harris. The concert will be at First United Methodist Church in Sacramento, 2100 J St.

On their own, Camerata California also will perform two concert works by English composer Ralph Vaughn Williams, and former Davis resident Sean Bianco will be a vocal soloist. Tickets are $22 general, $20 for seniors and $10 for students, available at www.cameratacalifornia.net.

The Davis Children’s Chorale also will sing a Spring Concert at 7 p.m. Friday, May 9, at Davis Community Church, 412 C St. The concert is titled “The Song that Nature Sings,” including songs that celebrate the beauty of nature. Pieces will range from the popular Renaissance favorite, “The Silver Swan” by Orlando Gibbons, to contemporary works such as David L. Brunner’s “Earthsongs,” to a jazzy, zany spin on a children’s favorite called “Old MacDoodle Had a Band.”

The Davis Children’s Chorale also will perform as usual at the Memorial Day service Monday, May 26, at the Davis Cemetery (time to be announced). This year, in addition to a few patriotic standards, the Chorale will honor fallen heroes with a hauntingly beautiful arrangement of Pie Jesu with french horn accompaniment.

The Davis Children’s Chorale is also available for hire for special events. To book the choir, or to schedule an audition, contact Mannion at tania.mannion@gmail.com. The chorale is open to qualified singers ages 5-14. More information about the Davis Children’s Chorale also can be found at the new website, www.DCChor.org.
