Fall 2008: Everlasting Voices

Fall 2008Our 30th season fall concert, entitled Everlasting Voices, is highlighted by a commissioned work of the same title by David DeLyser for chorus, piano, and cello. The concert will also feature a set of world music including the powerful “Horizons,” ethereal cathedral music with Rachmaninoff’s “Ave Maria,” a rare preview of a piece by Colorado composer Timothy Tharaldson, and will culminate with contemporary American vocal jazz and spirituals. We are excited to begin our 30th season. Come join the celebration!!!
