ART OF SOUND | OCEANS OF SONG
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. Two additional premieres include 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 as well as the winning entry in the 2019-20 Rachel Moore Student Composition Contest. 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.
We invite you to hear us for this one-night only performance in the breathtaking acoustics of Mission Santa Clara de Asis!
