Digital Concert Program (PDF)

Explore the powerful movement and vibration of sound, featuring a cluster of early and contemporary works that explore rich, multi-voice choral textures. An eclectic, uniquely Ars Nova program, with a cappella music by William Byrd, Gustav Mahler, Eric Whitacre, Bill Douglas, and more.

The song speaks to us. It says: “Stop. Stop with what you are doing, stop thinking, be still for a while, and just be. We are not created for endless worry and struggle. Remember who you are. We are born from the stars, not from downtrodden earth. We are the light that shines through us.”
