Spring 2015 - Ikon: All Night Vigil - March 21 & 22
"It is my belief that music is great if, at some moment, the listener catches a glimpse of eternity though the window of time" - Einojunhani Rautaavara
What is created when deep faith meets childlike awe? When mature passion meets extraordinary restraint? You get Rautaavara's All-Night Vigil. In the composer's greatest work for a cappella chorus, he takes us through one of the most intimate and exhaustive exhortations of faith. With his now-familiar mystical writing, complete with the usage of quarter-tones and whisper choruses, we welcome Basso-Profundo soloist,Mr. James Hayden, in presenting the California premiere of this monumental masterwork. Join us for an exceptional evening of this profound and gorgeous work of art.
Few things have the power to kindle passions and enliven the senses like the precious rose. Now whether it is a lily, a daisy, orchids or sunflowers, no other object has inspired poets and lovers quite like the "bloom of spring". Some of choral music's most beautiful melodies and poetry will be presented with Eric Whitacre's, Three Flower Songs, Lauridsen's, Le Chanson de Roses, Mulholland's, O My Luve's Like a Red, Red Rose and Bernstein's, Make Our Garden Grow. For a night of beautiful prose and even more gorgeous harmonies, don't miss this concert!
