Singers in Accord with Ahmed Anzaldúa
Immerse yourself in the wonder of natural phenomena expressed through the music of Osvaldo Golijov, Ēriks Ešenvalds, and Eric Whitacre, performed by Singers in Accord, led by guest director Ahmed Anzaldúa. Featuring the regional premiere of Golijov’s “Oceana,” the chorale will be joined by classical soprano Rhea Olivaccé, accompanied by orchestra and acoustic guitarists Eva Beneke and Milena Petkovic.
From the depths of the ocean, to the tundra, to the desert—these places represent an emotional connection with the eternal, and open our hearts to the mystery of natural marvels. Join us for the premiere of this extraordinary work, and be transported to vast spaces that are far removed from daily life.
