Waxing Poetic: A Celebration of Poetry - 2016 - 2017 Season Tickets
Three tickets for the price of two! Join Sacred and Profane for a season of poetry and premieres! In December, commemorate the great composers and wordsmiths of mid-twentieth-century England in a recreation of a 1944 BBC Christmas broadcast, including music by Britten and poetry by Auden. Also, be the first to hear exciting new choral works  a commission from up- and-coming American composer James Tecuatl-Lee and a US premiere by Karin Rehnqvist. In March, revel in the poetic verse of Shakespeare, with works by Beach, Vaughan Williams, Mäntyjärvi, and Martin. In May, enjoy the words of poetry masters such as Blake, Tranströmer, and others in sumptuous choral settings by Tas, Sandström, and our own Will Raymer. In this concert, we will also celebrate composer Lou Harrisons 100th birthday with a performance of his Mass for St. Cecilias Day and a commission from composer Edward Schocker in collaboration with Thingamajigs. These three exciting programs will be presented in Berkeley and San Francisco, with a third performance of Decembers concert offered in Alameda and a third performance of Mays concert in Gualala.
