December 2016: “Colors of Peace”
more information here
Soft white snow blankets the Winter ground, bringing calm and silence to our war-torn world. Above, the evergreen fir trees remind us that life still goes on, despite the red blood of battle. And from this chaos arises a Savior who will shed his blood, even as a crown of rose thorns pierces his flesh. And, peace shall he bring as a rainbow.
We raise our voices in joy at the wondrous blessings of this season as revealed in the music of many ages and nations, culminating in Benjamin Britten’s “A Ceremony of Carols”, with harpist Dan Levitan accompanying the chorus and soloists in this marvelous setting of medieval Christmas poetry, instilling in us a hope for a peaceful New Year.

March 2017: “A Dialogue of Heaven and Earth”
Join us in Santa Cruz as we share the stage with the Santa Cruz Chorale a program of works exploring our conversation with the Creator through the words and sounds we find in the creation that surrounds us. This sonic journey takes us an international sonic journey from the world of the Romantic composers through evocations of nature by contemporary composers from the Baltic nations, Scandinavia, Canada, Indonesia and South Korea.

June 2017: “Be Romantic”
Savor the beguiling melodies and lush harmonies of the Romantic era composers in a program of varied styles and origins. From music inspired by folk song to dance music to spiritually uplifting selections, we will bring you music that will caress, inspire and move your body and soul. This is music to share with those you love most: family, friends and colleagues with whom you wish to share something special and personal. And don’t forget your handkerchief!
