Fourth installment of The Four Seasons concert 

Vox Nova Chamber Choir to present “The Four Seasons: Summer Solstice” in concert, Universalist Church, 1 Middle Street, Brunswick, Sunday, June 24, 7:30 p.m.

The music for Summer Solstice features the Maine Premiere of “the national anthems” by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-Winning composer, David Lang. Lang takes fragments of text from the anthems of all 193 United Nations member states and unfolds the piece at speaking speed, with plenty of room for breaths between phrases and plenty of clarity to the words. It has the feel of sad and eerie intoning.

Surrounding this musical monument are lush, verdant symbols of summer in full beauty of the season: Whitacre’s “Go, Lovely Rose” and “With a Lily in Her Hand.” Barnum’s “Sweetheart of the Sun,” “Afternoon on a Hill” and “The Sounding Sea.”  Gjeilo’s haunting “Across the Vast, Eternal Sky,” and “Identity and The Ground” from The Sunrise Mass. “Stars” by Ešenvalds features tuned water glasses representing the luminescent heavens that cross the summer night sky.

Vox Nova Chamber Choir (Est. 2009) under the direction of Dr. Shannon Chase, champions the expansive body of modern and contemporary choral repertory.

Inscription of Hope

VOX NOVA CHAMBER CHOIR TO PRESENT CONCERT

INSCRIPTION OF HOPE

 Vox Nova Chamber Choir presents the second installment of their Musica Pro Pace: The 2017 Peace Concerts series on Saturday, June 24 at 7:30 PM and Sunday, June 25 at 3:00 PM in the Orion Performing Arts Center in Topsham, Maine.

The concert entitled, Inscription of Hope, memorializes powerful sentiments of hope and love found etched into a Nazi concentration camp wall by Jewish prisoners and presents music indicative of peace and the enduring human spirit. In contrast, music set to the visceral and even appalling prose of Dylan Thomas’ Ceremony After A Fire Raid, reveals brutal realities of the horrors of war. The program is ultimately designed to transport the listener on a journey of mind and spirit as expressed through the prayers and hopes of humanity.

Vox Nova Chamber Choir (Est. 2009) under the direction of Shannon Chase champions the expansive body of modern and contemporary choral repertory and brings performances of new music to Maine audiences. Sponsored by HM Payson.

 Tickets will be available for sale online Monday, June 5, 2017.
