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


1128 Pine Street,Boulder,80302,US | Boulder, CO

Journey through stories of love, nature, war, self, and family through choral music.
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 .
