More about the program:
Artistic Director and Conductor Linda L. Tedford has designed a concert of music that celebrates the resilience and strength of the human spirit in song, crafted by some of today’s most exciting and innovative composers.
“These are stories that connect us and reflect our capacity to love and persevere, even in the face of adversity,” Conductor Tedford said. Kim André Arnesen’s Even When He is Silent encourages hope in the darkest hour of life. The text for this piece was written by a World War II prisoner, who etched the words on the wall of his cell while being held at a concentration camp.
Elaine Hagenberg: Oh Love and Through Love to Light
Shawn Kirchner: Sweet Rivers
James Stevens arrangement: Nearer My God to Thee
C.Thomas Schwalm: Look to this Day, commissioned and premiered by the Chorale in 1997
“I have chosen repertoire that speaks to a variety of emotions, from frustration to exuberant joy,” Conductor Tedford said.
Join the Susquehanna Chorale for an evening of stunningly beautiful music that will not only inspire, but leave you spellbound. This concert embraces our humanity and shares the much-needed message that love always moves us toward the light. This is the choral art at its finest!
