This open dress rehearsal will give audience members a unique perspective on our holiday performance of Northern Lights. Join us for an intimate look at the choral process at a reduced price.
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.
