In December 2017 we will present holiday favorites, and a work known as the “Mona Lisa of Renaissance music,” Ave Maria, Virgo Serena by Josquin des Prez. In keeping with our commitment to presenting the best new choral music, we will offer the world premiere of Festival of Lights by New York composer Karen Siegel, and Stars by Eriks Esenvalds, which calls for choristers to play tuned wine glasses as they sing, creating a stunning aural effect.

In April 2018 we will present two performances of Arthur Honegger’s unique oratorio King David with chamber orchestra, vocal soloists, and guest narrator Grayson Hirst. The range of musical styles in this work is extraordinary – Gregorian chant, early 20th century modernist dissonance, and jazz. There are theatrical elements as well, including the off-stage voice of the Witch of Endor, and the character of David sung first by a boy soprano, and later by an adult tenor.
