Walker and Bella Voce Evoke the Sea

Music Review by Jim Lowe: Times-Argus April 8, 2008
I attended a performance at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul Oct. 23. The concert featured Bella Voce under the direction of Dr. Dawn Willis, whose influence has certainly shaped this group of women into an amazing musical organization that has, in five years since their first concert, carried the name of Vermont to festivals outside the state and to Ireland most recently.

The concert was made up of favorite pieces in several genres, and concluded with a performance of part of the text from Anne Morrow Lindbergh's "A Gift from the Sea" set by Vermont composer Gwyneth Walker who was present. Narration for the piece was read by reeve Lindbergh, the writer's daughter. Performance standards were high, and the audience responded appropriately to everything they heard.
