Spring 2016 "Voices of the Spirit"
SPRING 2018 PROGRAM
Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms; and Dan Forrest's Jubilate Deo.
Bernstein's creation is a magically unique blend of Biblical Hebrew verse and Christian choral tradition, a musical depiction of the composer’s hope for brotherhood and peace. Its world premiere was conducted by the composer himself in 1965.
Dan Forrest’s Jubilate Deo brings to life the global aspect of the traditional Psalm 100 text, “O be joyful in the Lord, all ye lands,” by setting it in seven different languages, including Latin, Hebrew and Arabic, Mandarin Chinese, Zulu, and Spanish, and closes with a movement combining several of these languages with English. Each movement combines some characteristics of its language-group’s musical culture with the composer’s own musical language.
Ryan Tibbetts will conduct the singers and orchestra, and nationally-renowned organist Daniel Stipe will accompany and perform.
Please plan to attend and enjoy the classical as well as the contemporary with your entire family!
