  • Overview

    Meet the Composer pre-concert talk at 3:15: Timothy C. Takach

    e sure to catch this program of exceptional choral literature exploring the seemingly dichotomous themes of waking and sleeping. To wake is to reject the embrace of sleep. Sometimes we long for the solace of the sleeping state while at others, we gladly forgo sleep to linger in the waking plane for as long as possible. The program will feature works spanning musical styles and eras from J.S. Bach to works that are brand new! The Ensemble is thrilled to present the world-premiere performance of a commissioned work on a text from Compline as it is found inĀ The Book of Common Prayer. Audience members will have the opportunity to meet the composer of our new work, Timothy C. Takach.
