Winter Serenade: Music for the Long Night

Join the Reed Chorus and Collegium Musicum on a trip through a long winter's eve. The program features music that explores themes of solstice, advent, and darkness, and depicts the stillness and cold of night. 

Our musical journey begins with twilight in Joseph Rheinberger's masterpiece Abendleid, after which we reflect the insecurity and fear inherent in darkness through Ola Gjeilo's Dark Night of the Soul, finally, we end in a celebration of the return of the dawn light in an arrangement of Dolly Parton's 1970s hit Light of a Clear Blue Morning. The concert also features music by Fauré, Sheppard, Barber, Saint-Saëns, Purcell, Holst, Allegri, Poulenc, and Tavener. 

Don't forget your scarf!

Free and open to the public.
