Concert Schedule 2016-2017
  1. Sunday Oct 23, 2016 4:00PM
    We Rage, We Rejoice
    St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 306 N Division St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
    Our opening concert of the season plumbs Madness and the music it inspires. Great composers have long been drawn to poetry of affliction and have expressed it in splendid ways. The concert will include great settings of Tasso as set by Gesualdo; as well as the maniacally brilliant Christopher Smart, represented by Britten's Rejoice in the Lamb. Haydn's Insanae et vanae curae, a piece evoking fear, dread and then beautiful lyricism, embodies the music in this program as we navigate through the tortuous melodies, wild harmonies and utter ebullience of the creative, tormented mind.

    Celebración!
    Genesis of Ann Arbor, 2309 Packard St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
    Our winter concert will be Spanish flavored, as we perform Conrad Sousa's celebrated Spanish Carols and Lullabies, scored for guitar, marimba, harp and choir, seasonal Sephardic music sung in Ladino, and Spanish inspired music from the Renaissance to the 21st century. The program will also include folk music of the Sephardic diaspora as well as traditional carols, all woven together in a delightful array of texture. Our annual Christmas concert is always a joyous, rich, and festive event.

    Voice of a War: The American Echo
    St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, 306 N Division St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
    Following in the footsteps of our powerful and acclaimed "Voice of a War" concert in 2014, which commemorated the centennial of the beginning of the Great War, we will honor the centennial of the American entrance into World War One in the spring of 1917 with a world premiere musical drama. Some of the area's finest actors, musicians and soloists will join VAE as we tell a new story of the War and its effect on American life.
