Cantabile Presents: Stories in Song


Fri May 10 2024 at 07:30 pm to 09:00 pm


First Congregational Church | Boulder, CO


Music is always telling stories be it from the context in which it was composed the text telling a particular story or something more metaphorical. This concert invites you on a journey through a spectrum of pieces from different eras and cultures each telling their unique stories of love nature mental health and family.

Program highlights:

  • Stories of War: We delve into the poignant realities of war as depicted through Maurice Ravel's enchanting melodies in Nicolette and Trois Beaux Oiseaux du Paradis.
  • Stories of Love: We explore the complexities of affection through Gustav Holst's achingly beautiful I Love My Love.
  • Stories of Nature: We journey into the serene connection between human emotions and the natural world brought to life by Fanny Hensel's Schöne Fremde and Mari Esabel Valverde's A Green Voice.
  • Stories of Self: We delve into self-discovery and personal growth beautifully portrayed in contemporary composer Laura Mvula's Sing to the Moon and Florence Price's Wander-thirst.
  • Stories for Families: We celebrate familial bonds and shared experiences with whimsical pieces such as Teddy Bears' Picnic and Josquin's El Grillo and bring the concert to a close with Stephen Sondheim's profound Children Will Listen from Into the Woods.
