An evening of music showcasing exquisite works of world-renowned, modern composers. Featuring compositions of Canadian-American composer R. Nathaniel Dett, whose profound melodies will touch your soul as we perform masterpieces including ‘Ave Maria,’ ‘Listen to the Lambs,’ and Chariot Jubilee, blending traditional African-American spirituals with classical music, and celebrating the rich tapestry that is the human experience. We delve into the soul-stirring sounds of Argentine composer Ariel Ramirez, his work Missa Criolla, will take us on a musical pilgrimage, intertwining indigenous rhythms and melodies.
We then shift our focus to the enchanting Serenade to Music from English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams, and Chichester Psalms, a powerful fusion of Hebrew scripture and Christian choral traditions by American composer Leonard Bernstein.
