Looking Back at our 2023 - 2024 Season

What a season it was! We opened last November by exploring the power of ancient sacred texts to express timeless desires for peace and spiritual transcendence with  Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms and Francis Poulenc’s Gloria. In March, we brought you explorations of fate and faith through the richly expressive music of Fanny Hensel’s Lobgesang, Johannes Brahms’s Schicksalslied, and Felix Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42. Then in May, we celebrated the ideals of the American Dream, exploring racial injustice, hope, human resilience, and the possibility of realizing a better world through Florence Price’s Abraham Lincoln Walks at Midnight, William Grant Still's Plain-Chant for America, and music by Margaret Bonds, Randall Thompson, André Thomas, Irving Berlin, and Dorothy Rudd Moore.

To our loyal audience, our soloists and instrumentalists, our volunteers, and all those who work behind the scenes to make our music-making possible: Thank you! We look forward to bringing our audiences more high quality music-making and wide-ranging programming in our 2024 - 2025 season. We will provide information here about our next season as soon as it is available.
