Canticle of the Sun

  • Date: February 4
  • Time: 4:00 pm

Featuring the Carolina Master Chorale

Composers have frequently drawn inspiration from stories and traditions of the past, whether from their own cultural heritage or from more distant sources. The title piece of this concert is an epic historical portrayal by a famous 20th-century composer: a choral setting of Saint Francis of Assis’s 13th-century text, Canticle of the Sun, by Amy Beach, recognized as the first American female composer. Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas pays satirical homage to a famous native tourist island, Janitzio, while Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodály creates a colorful portrait of the musical traditions in a particular city where the composer lived for several years in his Dances of Galánta. Additionally, the LBS will perform Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 5 ("Reformation").

Prices range from $28, $53, $58, $63 depending on seating section (fees included).
