Singers in Accord -- May 3 and 4
Event Date: April 19, 2014
Posted: April 19, 2014
Location: Minnesota, USA
Singers in Accord and guest conductor Michael McGaghie present "Radiant Dawn," an array of choral works that journey through our daily cycle of light. Modeled after a traditional all-night vigil, the program travels an arc from sunset to sunrise. Vespers repertoire from across the ages will intertwine with nighttime music of wonder and dreams. The performance will feature Dominick Argento's "The Vision," a sumptuous setting of imagery from Dante's "Paradiso."The program will also include moving pieces by Barber, Lauridsen, and Chesnokov, closing with the joy of dawn's radiant arrival as heralded gloriously in the fireworks of J.S. Bach's "Cantata No. 79."
The public is invited to give a concert tribute honoring a loved one for whom they have kept or are keeping vigil. The free-will donations collected from the tributes will directly benefit Fairview Hospice, helping to fund their music and massage therapy programs not covered by Medicare or insurance. The tributes will be printed in the concert program and celebrated by the music of the performance.
Join us for this very special choral experience. Both performances will be held at Westwood Lutheran Church in St. Louis Park, Saturday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 4 at 3:00 p.m.
