A Christmas concert centered around four sentiments that we experience during that season—Anticipation, Celebration, Nostalgia and Hope, with music chosen for each sentiment in mind. Music by Ola Gjeilo, Javier Busto, Orlando di Lasso, David Conte, and much more. In addition, singers from high schools will perform at each concert, plus audience sing alongs!
The Chorale will explore themes of strife, hardship and oppression and how we respond to that with music. The centerpiece of our concert is Henryk Gorecki’s Miserere, a 35-minute a cappella work written in response to political oppression in Poland in the early 1980s. We will also feature moving works by Eliza Gilkyson, Dominick DiOrio, and more.
