Experience the magic of this thematic choral program in a peaceful, intimate setting.
To open its 20th Anniversary Season, Seraphic Fire explores the juxtaposition and intersection of love and war. A perfectly blended 13-voice choir, conducted by Patrick Dupre Quigley, will serenade patrons alongside a string quartet and harpsichord. This elegantly constructed program strikes the perfect balance, featuring celebrated classics and weaving in exciting, contemporary compositions. Paul Crabtree’s When David Heard sets the tragic Biblical love story of David sending his son Absalom to war in aching contrast with disgraced Cardinal Bernard Law’s exclamations upon meeting Catholic victims of abuse. Peace comes in human form in Ileana Perez Velazquez’s Tu Paz Mia, a Seraphic Fire-commissioned work. With groundbreaking and gorgeous counterpoint, selections from Claudio Monteverdi’s Madrigals of War and Love round out the program.
