Giving voice to our longing to grasp the expansiveness of nature and the celestial realm, the choir sings music by Norwegian and Finnish composers Ola Gjeilo, Kim André Arnesen and Jussi Chydenius, as well as by Brahms, Mendelssohn and Schubert. Also: "Stars" by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds, which uses evocative harmonies and the otherworldly sound of ringing crystal glasses in a setting for Sara Teasdale's poem about the awe of watching the stars. Directed by Joëlle Morris, and accompanied by pianist Bridget Convey. Free but tickets required: batesconcerts.eventbrite.com. FMI 207-786-6135 or olinarts@bates.edu.
