“The struggle from darkness to light represents so much of the human condition,” said David De Lyser, music director and conductor. “Our hope in this concert is to take the audience on some of those journeys.”
The Choral Arts Ensemble will open the concert with works by Randall Thompson and Pete Seeger, among others, exploring darkness to light in terms of oppression, justice and salvation.
