Welcome to Consonare Chorale's 9th Season 2014-15
We are excited to introduce Consonare's Fall accompanist - Dan Gaynor! He is a rare treasure of the Pacific NW as jazz pianist, arranger, and composer currently working on his Masters in Piano Performance at Portland State University. Dan has played with several mavericks in our music community including: Nancy King, Esperanza Spalding, Glen Moore, Bobby Torres, Emily Braden, Marguerite Jeunemann, David Friesen, Kelly Joe Phelps & Mel Brown.
We send Rebecca Stager best wishes on the fabulous bouncing baby they will welcome this Fall and a speedy return to
the Consonare stage in January 2015!

Lamps & Lenses: A Light from Afar
Saturday • November 22nd • 2014 • 7:30 pm
Consonare opens season nine looking to the horizon! The ‘lights’ in our lives help us define our location and where we are headed. Whether painted in cotton candy hues or daydreaming in the possibility of the future, the lights from afar guide our steps. Be shepherded home on a familiar path with Lamps & Lenses.
The Siren’s Song
Saturday • March 14th• 2015 at 7:30pm
Let the beauty of the siren’s song tempt you to enchantment. Tonight’s music will be irresistibly sweet and mingled with the sadness of longing. Voices of the past will beguile you for an evening. However, no need to beware of a rocky coastline or perilous end. Consonare will navigate through the tempest and deliver you peacefully ashore.

Though their skin glows compellingly, beware of a false veneer. Often used to transport a seed or desire, forbidden fruits have been used to charm, make amends or as a poisonous ruse. Consonare gives voice to harbingers and advice offered through fable and verse. Throw caution to the wind and see what temptations abound.
