Great "choral masterpieces" lift our spirits, and often bring us a flood of memories of how choral music touched us when we first experienced it in college or high school. Bask in classics of the a cappella repertoire—Debussy and Hindemith Chansons; Poulenc Motets; Britten Flower Songs; pieces by Carter, Ives, Vaughan Williams, and Webern; and Puerling's charming A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square—all audience and singer favorites.

 

Be the first to hear 5 World Premieres predicted to become classics. You'll chuckle with us at settings of e.e. cummings poetry by Composer-In-Residence Brian Holmes—from twinkle-toes and pirates to an old cowboy. You'll be moved by New Zealander Chris Marshall's tale of a would-be migrant adrift upon the sea.

 

Why combine masterpieces of the repertoire with new works? Artistic Director Magen Solomon explains that she avidly cultivates engagements with living composers to help bridge the gulf between composer, performer, and audience. "I feel that music needs to be live music," Solomon comments. "It's so easy to listen to flawless recordings, but having live singers in front of live audiences singing music by living composers has always been a critical part of our group."

 

Come and experience your own special engagement with these choral masterpieces—old and new. And be part of the dual celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Choral Artists and Magen Solomon’s 15th season as artistic director.
