2016 Spring Concerts: Of Earth, Water, and Sky

Of-Earth-Water-and-Sky

Experience the life-giving connections Of Earth, Water, and Sky reflected in choral landscapes that parallel the depth of our human emotions, the awe-inspiring beauty of nature, and the power of the Divine.

Our program features a variety of styles and genres with selections by the great choral composers Palestrina, Handel, and Brahms as well as contemporary works by Barnum, Ticheli, and Whitacre.

What did our audience say about our first concert on April 10th? “Just amazing!” “Extraordinary concert and programming.”
