Songs of Zion

May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm CDT

From the rich legacy of psalm settings, our season finale juxtaposes music from the Jewish and Christian traditions. In convertendo (Psalm 126) from the operatic master Jean-Philippe Rameau infuses the psalmist’s words with flair and passion, while companion pieces by Salamone Rossi and J. S. Bach infuse psalm texts with sonorous counterpoint.

Featuring:
Erica Schuller, soprano
Elijah McCormack, male soprano ˚
Scott Rogers, countertenor ˚
Steven Brennfleck, tenor
Mark Diamond, baritone
Kirby Traylor, baritone

˚ Ars Lyrica debut

On the program:
Psalm settings and sonatas by Salamone Rossi
