The Frost Chorale looks back at the experience of this past year during Covid-19, and how reflecting on the things that make us all human kept their music together even when they were often forced to be physically apart.
Tonight’s concert is a journey of reflections on light, faith, destiny, hope, and dreams, and is inspired by great poets and composers, religious settings, current events, and even social media posts. Performing a wide range of works from the Renaissance through music written in the last few years, the program features pieces by Bach, Brahms, Frost composition faculty member Shawn Crouch, a Haitian piece arranged by Sten Källman, and Vicenti Lusitano, an African-Portuguese priest and musician who was the first published Black composer.
Each piece or set connects to our collective human experience, with the goal of drawing us closer to one another as we remember all the ways we are united.
