I want to personally invite you to our Winter Concert on February 24th. To combat the cold winter weeks, this program is filled with traditional repertoire that will warm your soul if not your body. You don’t want to miss Mendelssohn’s 42nd Psalm — with its counterpoint precision and underlying passion driving ever forward to a sublime and inevitable resolution. And who could resist Brahms’s “Song of Fate” full of dark warmth and drama? I’m convinced that somewhere in his life, Brahms loved an alto: his exquisite alto lines are unmatched in musicality and are delicious to sing.
Finally, don’t deny yourself the Duruflé motets. Sure to be an audience favorite, this is the music Utah Chamber Artists is meant to sing. Clear, ringing, A Capella magic that draws the listener in until they find themselves breathing in time with the choir. Music doesn’t exist in a vacuum; your participation is not passive but an act of artistic collaboration. Join us in Libby Gardner Hall at 7:30 pm and leave refreshed, uplifted and ready to face the dwindling winter weeks.
