  • PERFORMANCE: “EARTH SYMPHONY” - Charlotte Master Chorale

    March 9, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    Charlotte Master Chorale’s annual Unity Concerts aim to create bridges of understanding through shared experiences of choral music. Unity: Earth centers on the themes of sustainability and stewardship, powerfully portrayed in the North Carolina premiere of Jake Runestad’s EMMY Award-winning Earth Symphony, which imagines Earth’s hope for humanity, her discovery of its power, her ruination at its hands, her lament at its loss, and her recovery.

  • The Peace of Wild Things with The Kent Singers

    March 10, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
    St. Andrew’s Church, Kent, CT

    Our Spring 2024 concert features Britten’s Rejoice in the Lamb, Randall Thompson’s Frostiana, and two pieces by the young American composer, Jake Runestad: The Hope of Loving and The Peace of Wild Things.

    Scottish poet Wendell Berry’s brief poem, The Peace of Wild Things, captures in its eleven perfect lines the entire human condition, from agony and despair to peace, grace and freedom. It is set to music perfectly by Jake Runestad, along with six sacred poems in his collection, The Hope of Loving.

    Rejoice in the Lamb is an unusual and creative musical setting of equally exotic text by the English poet and mystic Christopher Smart, including praise expressed by the poet’s cat, Jeoffrey.

    We present Frostiana, a beautiful setting of seven of his most beloved poems, in honor of poet Robert Frost’s 150th birthday.
