Hope Lives Here

Reflect & be reassured in the promise of hope for the future

Sat Oct 16, 2021 4pm

Orchestra Hall

~75 min; No Intermission

Join the VocalEssence Chorus, Ensemble Singers, and Singers Of This Age, Minnesota Dance Theatre, and a chamber instrumental ensemble in an exuberant return to Orchestra Hall. Reflect on our journey through the pandemic and be reassured in the promise of hope for the future as we experience a fresh interpretation of Leonard Bernstein’s “Chichester Psalms,” juxtaposed with Astor Piazzolla’s tango-infused tribute to Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, “Las Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas” (Four Seasons of Buenos Aires). Traverse a range of emotions as you witness movement including original choreography featuring the Company of Minnesota Dance Theatre and VocalEssence Singers Of This Age. VocalEssence will also present the world premieres of Gabriel Kahane’s “We are the Saints,” a meditation on the natural world and our relationship to it commissioned by VocalEssence and Kyle Pederson’s “The Other Side.” Kahane and Pederson are exciting voices in classical composition.
