ABOUT THE CHOIRS
The Fort Myers High School Choral Department is made up of seven choirs comprising 150 students. They have performed several master-works including Schubert’s Mass in G, Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Faure’s Messe Basse, Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, and Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb and Missa Brevis. The choirs are also fortunate to have collaborated with the Fort Myers Symphonic Mastersingers, the choirs of Florida Gulf Coast University, and the Spirit of the Gulf Chorus.
In 2010 they appeared in a workshop with the world renowned Westminster Choir. They have sung for noted conductors Trent Brown, Jeff Faux, Mike Slamka, James Lorenz, Gerald Custer, Tony Thornton, Joe Miller, and James Jordan.
The Greenwave Choirs have also produced fully staged opera productions of Menotti’s The Telephone, Barber’s A Hand of Bridge, and Purcell’s 1698 Dido and Aeneas. Recent theatrical productions include Sweeney Todd, Avenue Q, Les Misérables, The Last Five Years, and Cabaret.
The Choral Department annually commissions new works by composers such as Peter Fischer (Annie Laurie), Blake Henson (O Magnum Mysterium), and Gerald Custer (Lignum Crucis and The Human Touch). This season, Greenwave Singers will premier a new work by Thomas LaVoy.
Greenwave Singers will release their first CD, The Ties That Bind Us, in August 2014.
