Special guest artist: Morten Lauridsen, composer, will play the piano accompaniment to his work.
In 2006, Morten Lauridsen was named an "American Choral Master" by the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 2007 he received the National Medal of Arts "for his composition of radiant choral works combining musical beauty, power and spiritual depth that have thrilled audiences worldwide."
Also featured are premieres of Volti commissions by Robin Estrada and this year's Choral Arts Laboratory competition winner, Ted Hearne, as well as a repeat performance of Donald Crockett's "Daglarym/My Mountains," commissioned and premiered by Volti last year.
