Requiem: Day of the Dead
November 1-2, 2014

In several religious traditions around the world, the first days of November are celebrated as All Souls’ Day and All Saints’ Day, and they are familiar in Mexico and the American Southwest as Dia de Muertos (“Day of the Dead”). We’re honoring this weekend of observances through requiem settings by two choral masters: Herbert Howells and Maurice Duruflé. The Howells Requiem examines the pain of loss, deep grief, and eternal hope; Duruflé wrote his Requiem for choir and organ in memory of his father. We’ll also pay tribute to Dr. Harvey K. Smith, beloved conductor of the Phoenix Boys Choir, with a world premiere written by J.A.C. Redford. Join us in commemorating the dearly departed through this concert of transcendence, inspiration, and uplift.

A Chorale Christmas: Music by Arvo Pärt & Ola Gjeilo
December 19-22, 2014

Rejoice and reflect in the exquisite profundity of Arvo Pärt’s “Magnificat Antiphons” —these tenderly expressed compositions, in Pärt’s own chant-like style, evoke an introspection of Advent. We’ll sing gorgeously arranged Christmas carols by Ola Gjeilo, including “Away in a Manger” and “In the Bleak Midwinter,” and we’ll invite you to lift your voice with us for our annual sing-along tradition.
