3:00 PM • Kraushaar Auditorium
Tom Hall leads the full Chorus and string orchestra in poignant and powerful settings of "Dona Nobis Pacem" by Ralph Vaughan Williams and Peteris Vasks as well as Arvo Pärt's beautiful meditation, "Da pacem Domine." Vocal soloists including soprano Hyunah Yu and bass-baritone Robert Cantrell, and the program also includes the local premiere of a jointly-commissioned motet by composer Jake Runestad.
"A Choral Conversation" follows the performance featuring Tom Hall and special guests including Chic Dambach, discussing the role that music and the arts play in peace-building. Writer, lecturer and consultant, Chic Dambach was President and CEO of the Alliance for Peacebuilding. Author of the book Exhaust the Limits: The Life and Times of a Global Peacemaker, Chic serves on the boards of the Alliance for Peacebuilding, Institute for Economics and Peace, International Peace and Security Institue, Peace x Peace, the Institute for Horn of Africa Studies, and Future Symphony.
The voices rang out with resplendent confidence, and the sopranos had no apparent difficulty reaching the cruel and challenging high B's in the piece. The chorus's performance was the best part of the concert….the thunderous power of this unique masterpiece never fails to stir the blood, and the ovation was loud, long and well deserved.
