Posted | 0 comments

The Pearl Theater presents the Boundless vocal ensemble in “The Elusive Heart”, a new music theater work, April 4-6, 2014 in Bonners Ferry, ID and Creston, BC.  “The Elusive Heart” is both a choral concert and a powerful theater work in which astounding new scientific discoveries about the human heart are shared alongside ancient poetry in vibrant visual projections.  “The Elusive Heart” will be presented Friday April 4 at 7:30 pm at the Prince Charles Auditorium in Creston, BC, Saturday April 5 at 7:00 PM and Sunday April 6 at 3:00 PM at the Pearl Theater in Bonners Ferry, ID.  The Pearl Theater doors and café will open one hour before show time.  Tickets are $10 at the door.

“Boundless” is an eight member vocal ensemble directed by Vicki Blake Thompson and accompanied by Barb Nelson. “Boundless” specializes in works incorporating music, theater, and the visual arts. Performers come from Bonners Ferry and Creston. They include Gail Southall and Rhea Verbanic, soprano; Skye Palmer and Vicki Blake Thompson, alto; DJ Cruttenden and Rob Cleve, tenor; and Sam Richardson and Jim Thompson, bass.

“The new scientific information about the human heart is what inspired me to take on this production,” said Vicki Blake Thompson, director. “For centuries the sages have spoken of the power of the human heart. Now we are beginning to uncover scientific facts about the heart which not only support the old intuitions but force us to take a hard look at how we are living our lives. This production explores in song, poetry, and facts the powerful yet elusive human heart.”

Music includes extremely varied works ranging from classic rock pieces like “Loves Me Like Rock”, “Shambala”, and “The Longest Time” to choral works with texts from poets like Hildegard of Bingen, Chief Seattle, and Sara Teasdale.
