Event

Opus 7 Vocal Ensemble presents "Grant Us Peace"
"Opus 7, one of the most esteemed musical groups anywhere" - Richard Campbell, The Gathering Note, December 2009

2013 - awarded "The American Prize in Choral Performance" - Community Chorus Division

From conflict to resolution, from dissonance to consonance, Opus 7 takes works from 17th and 18th century Italy and juxtaposes them with music written in the last twenty years. Although several hundred years separate the early repertoire from the later works, the compositions show striking similarities. Antonio Caldara's stirring Stabat Mater illustrates the startling dissonance of the early Italian Baroque paired with the stark harmonies and modern, soulful lyricism of John Muehleisen's work of the same name. Also featured are a late Monteverdi madrigal with sacred text, Stabat Virgo Maria, and the world premiere of Stephen Cavit's arrangement of Amazing Grace for choir, strings, trombones, piano and soloists.  The concert concludes with Latvian composer PÄ“teris Vasks' majestic Dona nobis pacem for choir and orchestra.

Opus 7 was formed by Loren Ponten in 1992 and features some of the Northwest's finest choral artists. The group is known for its glorious sound, ardent musicality, and innovative programming of late 19th-, 20th-, and 21st-century choral repertoire.
