HUMILITY - the wish for simplicity
In the final program of its 26th concert season, The Esoterics will articulate our common desire for emotional simplicity, or HUMILITY. This performance will consider the origins of lowliness as a result of humiliation or hiding, surrender or sorrow, generosity or gratitude. It will also examine the various different contexts in which we find ourselves humble: while tenderly in love, while patiently or hopefully in need, while meekly witnessing the majesty of nature.
Giving voice to verses from the Bible (John and Galatians), a Mohawk prayer, a speech by Chief Joseph (Hinmuuttu Yalatlat) of the Nez Perce, poems by Pablo Antonio Cuandra, Paul Laurence Dunbar, Annie Finch, Amy Fleury, Gary Snyder, and Dylan Thomas, The Esoterics HUMILITY will feature music by Gabriela Lena Frank, Stacy Garrop, Anna-Karin Klockar, David Lang, Forrest Pierce, Sarah Rimkus, Augusta Read Thomas, and Dale Trumbore.
The Esoterics will offer three performances of HUMILITY.
Please join us as we foster modesty, empathy, restraint, and respect.
