Threads of Joy

May 17 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

· Tickets starting at $30 – $35

We close out the season with a selection of a cappella classics, including lushly Romantic works by Johannes Brahms and Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to St. Cecilia, an exuberant ode to the patron saint of music based on a poem by W.H. Auden. This program explores many facets of joy. With her 2018 setting of a poem by Laura Foley, Threads of Joy, composer Dale Trumbore reveals the duality of pain and happiness. In A Drinking Song, Matthew Harris provides a lively and ebullient setting of a poem by W.B. Yeats. And composer Jake Runestad calls his Alleluia from 2014 “a rhythmic declaration of joy.”
