Concert Chorus will collaborate with VA-based adult chorus Choralis, directed by Gretchen Kuhrmann, on the penultimate concert of the group’s 20th anniversary season.
The unparalleled exuberance of J.S. Bach’s setting of Psalm 117, Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden, BWV 230, prepares the listener for Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms. In addition, Choralis welcomes back British composer Bob Chilcott with two of his works, Canticles of Light and Move Him Into the Sun. Canticles of Light will be performed in collaboration with the Children’s Chorus of Washington. Move Him Into the Sun is a profound yet hopeful setting of Wilfred Owen’s First World War poetry.
