“True Concord Voices & Orchestra has created something truly spectacular”
-Arizona Daily Star
GRAMMY-nominated True Concord returns for its 15th season – a season nothing short of “Luminous” – with an innovative combination of great masterpieces and thought-provoking newer works all relevant to life today.
The season opens with a flare! Led by Dale Warland, whose brilliant career has made a profound contribution to the music of our time, Northern Lights explores the unique draw and power of the choral music of Scandinavia and the Baltics.
Beginning with Copland’s stirring Fanfare for the Common Man, the November concerts American Rhythm explore the complexity of war and sacrifice. Barber’s introspective Adagio for Strings balances tension with serenity. The concert culminates with Dreams of the Fallen by Jake Runestad, exploring the emotional impact war has on returning soldiers.
In December, imagine snow on the ground, a crisp night air, the excitement of childhood and mystery of the season. Then join your voice to the magnificence of True Concord with its annual tradition of Lessons & Carols by Candlelight in the area’s most beautiful churches.
In January, take a sun-drenched musical tour of Latin America, as True Concord Goes Latin! This concert cycle is in partnership with Tucson Desert Song Festival. Culminating with the haunting Bachianas Brasilieras No. 5 by Villa-Lobos, the extraordinary voice of soprano Corinne Winters will rise ecstatically over a rain forest wall of sound.
In February, True Concord takes on one of the most ambitious musical compositions of all time: J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. A work so powerful that people of all beliefs find meaning in it – Experience why this work has held its emotional impact from 1727 to today!
The season closes with a question and offers a shining answer, contrasting the noble grandeur of Mozart’s Requiem with the radiance of Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna.
