I'm listing just the concert as the event here, but I plan to go to the pre-show talk as well - let me know if you would like to join me.
Notes on the show:
This spring GGMC will raise your spirit, soaring to new artistic heights and bringing you exciting world premieres: Ascension by Swedish composer Fredrik Sixten and Waking by Canadian composer Leonard Enns. Also featured is Swedish saxophonist Anders Paulsson, who partners with GGMC in his own arrangements of American spirituals and in David Conte's Good-Bye My Fancy!
Music Director Joseph Piazza's 10-year anniversary program includes the riveting Bishop and the Pagan by Veljo Tormis, the haunting Lamentations by English composer Tarik O'Regan, and Andra Day's Rise Up.
