Guest Choir: New Choir

Time and Place

A Dialogue of Heaven and Earth

The highly acclaimed New Choir, celebrating its 17th season under founding director, Eileen Chang, is noted for presenting diverse, challenging and engaging choral music from many cultures and musical periods.

In this concert, the choir will explore our conversation with the Creator as expressed in the words we exchange with each other and the sounds of creation that surround us.

The music will be a sonic journey from the late Romantic world of Rheinberger and Stanford through evocations of nature by 20th century composers Hugo Alfven of Sweden and Canadian Murray Schafer to contemporary sound creations by today’s rising stars from Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, South Korea and Indonesia. Experience this truly international sonic journey through the universe.
