CLASSICS: Magnificent Voices

Saturday, March 23, 2024 7:30pm

Event Description

J.S. Bach’s glorious setting of the text of the Song of the Virgin Mary Magnificat is a masterpiece of the Baroque choral repertoire. Performed with the Louisville Chamber Choir and the LO under the baton of Teddy Abrams, this is a performance that will live in memory. But no less to be missed is the oratorio that opens this choral concert. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, Carolyn Shaw, familiar to Louisville audiences, has crafted a compelling piece, The Listeners, that in her words is about “the wonderment of the human condition and actually looking inward at ourselves as people and thinking about whether we are truly kind to each other”. Soloists, choir, narrators reciting the poetry of Whitman and Tennyson, and the recorded voice of Carl Sagan express a singularly beautiful and reflective musical experience.
