December Concerts: Season of Peace
Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church
Sunday, December 4, 3PM
Saturday, December 10, 7:30PM

"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before." Leonard Bernstein's poignant words in response to the assassination of John F. Kennedy echo defiantly today. As we approach Christmas, a season of love, empathy and peace, we draw inspiration from Bernstein's pledge. We believe that the passion and power of our music can bring forth hope and faith, and that the fear and anger in our world can be overcome by a true Season of Peace. Included in the program are pieces by Joan Szymko, Herbert Howells, Alberto Grau, and Morten Lauridsen and our traditional carol sing-along.

March Concerts: Music of Light
Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church
Sunday, March 12, 3PM
Saturday, March 18, 7:30PM

With his first command, God created light. From that moment on, light has been a potent metaphor and strong spiritual symbol of virtue: it's better to light one candle; we shed light on things that are unclear; we bring new ideas to light. Choirs sing songs of sunrise, moonlight, eternal light, darkness, and rainbows of color. Lighten your load and experience the shimmering music of light. Composers in this program include Francis Poulenc, Latvian Eriks Esenvalds, and Americans Eric Whitacre and Philip Glass.

June Concerts: American Masters
Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church
Sunday June 4, 3PM
Saturday, June 10, 7:30PM

Canada, South America, the Caribbean. All are part of the Americas. As we prepare for our summer tour of the Baltic nations, we'll revel in music of our own hemisphere. Much of the music we'll take with us on tour will be from American master composers – men and women who continue to reshape our musical world. Join us as we celebrate the work of Alice Parker, Robert Shaw, Morten Lauridsen, Samuel Barber, Alberto Ginestera, Eric William Barnum, and more.
