Elevate Your Senses With Music

An event designed to enhance the experience of music, the Girl Choir of South Florida (GCSF) is gearing up to present Sound Sense, which entails a musicological journey through the senses. Although music is generally an auditory experience, vocal music enriches this mental journey through its ability to express and explore senses beyond sound. To truly offer a remarkable experience, the Girl Choir will provide audiences with the opportunity to “taste,” “see,” and “feel” music by converting poetry into song. Senses will be explored through a variety of works from composers ancient to modern, spanning a multitude of cultures. The audience will experience notable works such as Carroll’s “Beautiful Soup” from Alice in Wonderland, Z Randall Stroop’s “I Had a Paintbox,” Béla Bartok’s Hungarian folk song “Bread Baking,” and a thumping vocal jazz piece titled “Chili con Carne.” To set the tone for the event, the choristers will begin with an original work arranged by Gayle Giese, a GCSF accompanist. To achieve the ultimate sensory enlightenment, lighting, movement, and staging will be incorporated to elevate the experience for each involved.
