On March 30th, we delivered the first performance of our season in New York, NY, and were delighted to have so many of you in attendance! If you missed us, we'll be continuing the season with a double-header weekend on April 27-28: a Saturday evening concert in Newport, RI, and a Sunday matinee in Boston, MA (joined by VOICES Boston). We hope to see you then, or in Philadelphia on May 11.
Failed Saints grapples with what it means to be human in a time of inhumanity, exploring our mortal imperfections, our shared divinity, and ultimately our power to co-create the world as we wish it existed. Featuring choral music that holds space for rage, grief, transformation, and healing, this program includes the world premiere of two movements from Sarah Rimkus's eponymous Failed Saints, Alberto Ginastera's Lamentations of Jeremiah (his only composition for unaccompanied chorus), and Saunder Choi's The New Colossus as well as works by Dunphy, Guillaume, Valverde, Runestad, Barnett, Paulus, and others.
