Considering This Moment: Music With Strings

Presented by Sacred and Profane

This thought-provoking program will feature music for choir and string orchestra, in collaboration with the Circadian String Quartet and additional local string players. We will bring you Zanaida RoblesNo Fairytale Here, a setting of writings by the African American suffragist Ida B. Wells that includes spoken voice; San Francisco Conservatory composer David Conte’s reverent September Sun, composed in memory of those who died in the September 11th attacks; and Eric Whitacre’s Three Hebrew Love Songs for choir and string quartet. We are also delighted to present the U.S. premiere of Karin Rehnqvist’s exuberant Day is here! for choir, soloists, and strings. Like  Songs from the North, which we commissioned for our fortieth-anniversary concert in May 2018, Day is here! sets texts by indigenous poets that suggest a response to a world that is struggling with a changing climate.
