Our spring concert delves into spirituality and the human experience. Stravinsky's Funeral Song, Op. 5, pays homage to Rimsky-Korsakov, revealing Stravinsky's early development and Russian connection.
Poulenc's celebrated "Gloria" blends traditional and modern in a choral-orchestral masterpiece. Shifting between solemnity, joy, and intimacy, it's a dynamic setting of the Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Rutter's contemporary "Requiem" offers comfort in its lush harmonies and balanced tradition and modernity. Composed in 1985, it conveys solace and hope in the face of mortality.
