Sunrise Mass v1 5x7.jpg

Sunrise Mass

Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo’s “Sunrise Mass" has been described as a metaphysical journey from the heavens to earth, a metaphor for human development, a spiritual journey. Marvel at the beauty and sonic acoustical space of the Holy Name of Jesus Cathedral as the Master Chorale is joined by a symphonic string ensemble. Also on the program will be works by Arvo Pärt, Felix Mendelssohn, and Josef Rheinberger.

All the Colors of the World

As the Cyndi Lauper song proclaims, “True colors are beautiful, like a rainbow.” In this program the 40-voice chamber choir uses the concept of color in musical pieces like “My Luve’s Like a Red, Red Rose”, “Black is the Color of My True Love’s Hair” or ”Bein’ Green" as a prism for viewing our natural world and the humanity that comprises it.  Through a rainbow of choral colors we celebrate our differences and our similarities.
