Description

We close out the season with a selection of a cappella classics, including lushly Romantic works by Johannes Brahms and Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia, an exuberant ode to the patron saint of music based on a poem by W.H. Auden. This program explores many facets of joy. With her 2018 setting of a poem by Laura Foley, Threads of Joy, composer Dale Trumbore reveals the duality of pain and happiness. In A Drinking Song, Matthew Harris provides a lively and ebullient setting of a poem by W.B. Yeats. And composer Jake Runestad calls his Alleluia from 2014 “a rhythmic declaration of joy.”

Watch the livestream from the comfort of home on Sunday, May 19th at 4pm. Stream will be active for two weeks following the concert for viewing through June 2nd at 11pm.
