Northern Lights - Music of the Baltics and Scandinavia



Northern Lights showcases music that evokes the shimmering beauty of the aurora borealis. The program spans a thousand years of Baltic and Nordic choral music, from medieval chant and traditional carols to contemporary works by Einojuhani Rautavaara, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, Cyrillus Kreek, and Veljo Tormis. The centerpiece is Northern Lights by Ēriks Ešenvalds, one of today’s most sought-after young composers. With voices, chimes, and tuned water goblets, Ešenvalds recreates the wonder of the northern lights in sound.

Peace - Music of Three Faiths



“Moslems and Christians and Jews / raising their hands to the sky / their chanting voice in unison…”
– Rumi, from Gloria (everywhere)

Peace explores the deep connections between three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Anchoring the program are Gloria (everywhere) by Turkish-American composer Kamran Ince with words by the 13th-century Sufi poet Rumi, and I sing of love by Bernard Hughes who weaves together texts from Jewish, Christian, and Muslim traditions.

The concert also includes uplifting works by the Renaissance Jewish composer Salomone Rossi, contemporary Lebanese composer Kahlil Rahme, and Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds, along with Healey Willan’s An Apostrophe to the Heavenly Hosts.

Bach - Mass in B minor



Seattle Pro Musica presents J.S. Bach’s monumental Mass in B minor. Completed in 1748 just prior to the composer’s death, the Mass is perhaps Bach’s ultimate expression of both his musical skills and his deep personal faith.

We are joined by the renowned period-instrument orchestra Pacific Musicworks with concertmaster Tekla Cunningham, Baroque trumpet virtuoso Kris Kwapis, and four stellar soloists: Kendra Colton, soprano; Joseph Schlesinger, countertenor; Zach Finkelstein, tenor; and Charles Robert Stephens, bass. This special concert will be performed one night only — don’t miss what’s sure to be a memorable event.
