A Winter's Night: Songs of Evening, Stars, and the Northern Lights

Winter's Night Logo 2.jpg


Fly into Sacred and Profane’s 40th season with a secular holiday concert about the night sky. This ethereal program will feature music by Monteverdi, Mendelssohn, Brahms, and Alfvén. We will also sing works by several contemporary composers, including Steven Stucky and Stacey Gibbs from the United States, Ola Gjeilo from Norway, and Karin Rehnqvist from Sweden. We are especially excited about Ēriks Ešenvalds, the young Latvian composer who has taken the choral world by storm, and we will be performing his moving Stars for choir and water-tuned wineglasses, in addition to other great works.
