In the final concert of our 43rd season we will perform some of the greatest choral music from American and Spanish composers. Love and Fire will feature works from the Renaissance to the present day, previewing the program ORS takes on tour to Barcelona this July. Highlights from the program include American folksongs and spirituals arranged by Mack Wilberg, Moses Hogan, and Marques Garrett, and The Dark Night of the Soul from modern Spanish composer Carlos Surinach.
Artistic Director Ethan Sperry frequently highlights living and local composers, and in this concert we'll perform Portland native Dr. Morten Lauridsens Madrigali: Six Fire Songs on Italian Renaissance Poems. Dr. Lauridsenone of only two National Medal of Arts recipients from Portlandwill help prepare our singers in rehearsals and co-host as a guest speaker at the concert during this visit. In addition to this stunning exploration of the themes of love and fire, we'll share two of his most well-known compositions: O Magnum Mysterium and Sure on This Shining Night.
