A Choral Mosaic

 

Voices 21 continues its 14th season with a program that will be the core of a performance to be given at the upcoming 2014 Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. The concert will feature a rich assortment of musical selections that evokes a choral mosaic on the emotions of grief, compassion, comfort, love, joy, and peace. Highlights include motets by Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Sermisy. Contemporary pieces include Eliza Gilkyson's “Requiem,” written for the 2004 Asian tsunami victims; an arrangement of the spiritual “Steal Away” by Nancy Wertsch; “So Small a Thing” by Maryland composer Tom Benjamin and the premiere performance of a work by Paul Criswell dedicated to Dr. Jesse Parker and Voices 21.
