Earth: Holiday Music of Eastern Europe
Sink into the heart of the winter season with Sacred & Profane as we revel in the rich harmonies of Eastern Europe music for the holidays. Our diverse program will feature the familiar and the rarely heard: from the florid chant-based works of Russian composers Rachmaninoff and Chesnokov to the folk-influenced works of Armenian composers Komitas and Khorentatsi, from the mix of West and East in the music of Hungarian composers Kodály and Bárdos to the modern innovations of Górecki and Dychko. Our concert will also include arrangements by the popular local Balkan women's chorus Kitka, and much loved Ukrainian Christmas carols, including the original Carol of the Bells.
