This summer we contemplate warm summer nights, star-strewn heavens, life and love in some of the lushest music written for mixed chorus and scintillating piano accompaniment as in Gjeilo's Ubi Caritas with piano improvisation which will be realized by our own amazing Colin Graebert. A string quartet will join us for the performance for several pieces on this program, including Ola Gjeilo's epic Dark Night of the Soul. Evocative poems from literary greats Edna St. Vincent Millay, Sara Teasdale, R.M. Rilke, Robert Frost, Pablo Neruda and James Agee shine in Lauridsen's moving cycle Nocturnes, and in works by Eric William Barnum, Frank Ticheli and Z. Randall Stroope. Our joy flies free in Karl Jenkins' Adieums, written in a language all his own, and Moses Hogan's gospel praise song and African anthem Baba Yetu. Please join us for an unforgettable evening!
