Season of Peace
Join Voci Women's Vocal Ensemble for our December concerts - Season of Peace - as we interweave Christian and Jewish musical traditions in a beautiful concert to welcome the winter season.
In collaboration with harpist Meredith Clark, we present Benjamin Britten's masterpiece, A Ceremony of Carols, along with other works for women's chorus and harp.
We will interweave this masterwork with lovely settings of traditional Hebrew texts by Joseph Spivak, Sherry Kosinski and Sheryl Kaskowitz, as well as beautiful medieval and renaissance jewels by Hildegard von Bingen and little-known woman composer, Sulpitia Cesis (b.1577). We will also premiere a new work written for Voci by Artistic Director Mitchell Covington.
This falls concerts mark the 16th year of Voci's Voices in Peace concert series. Begun in 2001, this fall tradition offers stunningly beautiful music to calm and inspire us on a path to peace.
The Voci ensemble is the most creative gift musically...would that it could be broadcast to the world and people listened. It would bring peace and understanding among nations.
