With the naked eye, approximately 6,000 stars can be seen in optimal conditions. It's no wonder that these tiny balls of gas have fascinated humans for centuries and been invaluable to prophets, sailors, and ancient civilizations, not to mention inspiration to countless poets, composers, and artists alike.
Ensemble Lyrae's 2022-2023 Season, Star Light, Star Bright uses the stars to guide our music and storytelling. The simplicity of the timeless nursery rhyme might seem trite in these trying times, but we find that simplicity is clarity.
In our December concert program Star Light, we will explore a myriad of references to stars, celestial light, and the radiance cast upon the earth in a seasonal celebration of song. We will share music of Dan Forrest, Craig Courtney, Jason Robert Brown, Sarah Quartel, Leonardo Ciampa, John Jacob Niles, and many more. There are two opportunities to enjoy this night of heavenly light.
