Sweetest in the Gale (SinG), the 30-voice women’s choir of the Oratorio Chorale, directed by Emily Isaacson, will present a concert of music by living composers who imaginatively repurpose traditional or folk tunes.

Folk music originates in traditional popular culture and is transmitted orally from generation to generation. Works by the six composers draw on a variety of sources: the Bible, English song transported to the Appalachian mountains, Lithuanian poetry, Inuit-Yupik songs, and Southern Harmony, the most popular American tune book of the 19th century.
