National Philharmonic: Northern Lights & More
A cappella singing and New Age music align in this fascinating concert juxtaposing the rich traditions of Rachmaninoff's Vespers featuring the famous "Bogoroditse Devo" ("Now Let Thy Servant Depart"), with new sounds by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo's "Northern Lights" and "The Lake Isle (of Innisfree)," invoking the Celtic air with guitar, string quartet and piano. "Unicornis Captivatur" rounds out the Gjeilo offerings, opening with a medieval chant that expands into a ten-part choral dance. Young Bethesda composer Alistair Coleman contributes another premiere at the Music Center at Strathmore for the National Philharmonic Chorale that can't be missed!
