A New Sun Rises

October 16 @ 12:00 am - 11:59 pm EDT


feat. vocal ensemble Variant 6 and a world premiere by composer Kile Smith

In person Oct 8-10 (proof of vaccination required)
Video on demand October 16-26*

Celebrate new suns and guiding stars as we sail forth into a new season, heartened by the transcendent music of the past and a luminous world premiere from composer Kile Smith. From 16th c. settings of A solis ortus cardine (From the point of the rising sun) to Smith’s new setting of Ave maris stella (Hail, star of the sea) for renaissance instruments and voices, this is music that lights our way through the darkness and offers hope for a new day ahead.
