When despair for the world grows in me . . .
I come into the peace of wild things . . . .
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
We will present choral works evoking the wonders of nature and joy of life from traditional choral masters Brahms, Schubert, Stanford, and Thompson, as well as contemporary composers Ola Gjeilo, Eric Whitacre, Morten Lauridsen, Paul Basler, John Rutter, and Gwyneth Walker.
DCA is a community chorus of approximately thirty-five auditioned singers with a mission to present significant works of secular and sacred choral music in performances of artistic excellence that inspire and uplift audiences and nurture the appreciation and enjoyment of choral music.
