The Choral Project and the San José Chamber Orchestra present their 15th annual concert collaboration "Winter's Gifts,” revolving around the theme of “spirit.” The concert features works by a star-studded roster of composers, including Dominick Argento’s resplendent “Gloria” (from The Masque of Angels), Adrian Peacock’s rousing “Venite, Gaudete,” and John Paynter’s other-worldly composition “The Rose,” as well as gems by local favorite composers include Brent Heisinger’s “Walk Within Winter,” Michael Touchi's arrangement of "Ocho Kandelikas," Anica Galindo’s “Swept Away,” and a special work in memory of Jessye Norman. The concert also features the world premiere of “Tapestry of Life" by conductor Daniel Hughes on the subject of our interconnectedness. Guest artists include mezzo-soprano Malin Fritz and pianist Donna Stoering.

Always rich with magnificent choral works that span several styles and cultures, the repertoire for this season's ART OF SOUND :: OCEANS OF SONG  spans distances to connect lands and people together, much like oceans do. The centerpiece will be the Northern California premiere of “The Ocean Between Us” by rising star composer Matthew Lyon Hazzard, for choir, piano, strings, and tuned wine glasses. Also premiering will be a newly adapted setting of Daniel Hughes’s powerful song “Refugees,” set to a thought-provoking text that addresses the plight of those who seek refuge from poverty-stricken countries. Other compositions include pieces by Renaissance composer Orlando di Lasso to contemporary South African composer Lebo M, as well as jewels by Jake Runestad, René Clausen, and Andrea Ramsey round out the program.
