HONESTY - the strength of sincerity
In the fourth program of its 26th concert season, The Esoterics will honor the value and strength of sincerity, or HONESTY. This performance will examine the fragility of our minds that are incessantly bombarded with information, opinion, and pointless words. It will also encourage us to find grounding and peace in accepting the truth, to calm our restless or idle minds, to exercise self-control from speaking deceitfully, to find comfort in the unanswered question, to expect and embrace unavoidable change, to free ourselves from hatred, fear, and blindness, and to place our trust in good thoughts, words, and deeds. Who knows? We might also tell you an elaborate lie.
The Esoterics will sing texts from a wide variety of sources, including the ancient Greek Aethonians, the Dhammapada, the Tao te ching, Psalm 34, Brandon Elliott, George Graham Vest, and Kathleen Raine. We will feature music by Abbie Betinis, Samantha Fernando, Ted Hearne, Anna-Karin Klockar, Forrest Pierce, Fahad Siadat, Dale Trumbore, Trevor Weston, and Julia Wolfe. In addition we will perform three world premiere commissions by this year's POLYPHONOS winners: David Ho-yi Chan, Katherine Pukinskis, and Scott Senko.
Sunday afternoon's performance will be produced by the St. John's Concert Series.
Advance purchase of passes is optional. There will be an opportunity to contribute at the concert.
Please join us as we advocate for the truth in all its forms.
