oin us on Saturday, June 3 at 7:30 for our final concert of the season, with guest artists Laura Choi Stuart, soprano, and Chris Gekker, trumpet!
Victoria Gau, conductor

Signs of Life: Music and Healing

Osvaldo Golijov, Three Songs for Soprano and Strings
Alan Hovhaness, Avak the Healer
Russell Peck, Signs of Life II


This program takes the listener on a musical journey from loss and despair, as explored in Golijov's intense and hauntingly beautiful songs, to the mystical exploration of the steps from loss to light by Alan Hovhaness, and finally the life-embracing music of Russell Peck, a composer who also had a deeply felt mission to make the world a better place.

The Boston Globe called Laura Choi Stuart "a lyric soprano of ravishing quality". Fanfare Magazine proclaimed Chris Gekker to be "a trumpeter who is able to produce meltingly flutelike tones at one extreme, and to bring the house down at the other". Come see why these are two of our favorite artists!

Join us at Episcopal Church of the Ascension, 633 Sligo Ave, Silver Spring, MD
7:30PM on June 3, 2017
