Lush, vivid, startling chords mark one of Sergei Rachmaninoff's finest contributions to the world of music, his liturgical symphony All-Night Vigil -- also known as Vespers. This 1915 work not only stands as one of Rachmaninoff's most acclaimed compositions, ingeniously integrating traditional Russian chant melodies, but also represents the crowning achievement of the Golden Age of Russian Orthodox sacred choral music. This All-Night Vigil won't literally have you in the concert hall until dawn, but it does promise to take you on a musical journey through truly awe-inspiring choral sounds. Learn More

This is the Mingus Big Band. A 14 piece Jazz band that pay homage to the phenomanal composer and Base player. The performance captured the diversity of Mingus'es compositions; everything from bebop, to straight ahead renditions of Good by Pork Pie Hat(in honor of Lester Young, to a piece I had never heard before, The Children's hour of prayer. which could have been written to compliment Bernsteins west side story. Every musician is virtuoso and every musician had a great imporovizational solo. The evening was totally psychotic.
