To our friends from around the globe, we echo “shalom,” a common greeting and farewell in traditional Jewish culture, but literally translated to mean peace, welfare, safety, tranquility, friendship, completeness, and perfection.
As we share our musical message of peace, we invite the listener to contemplate his or her own personal journey for peace. As demonstrated through our music, conflict, turmoil, sorrow, and loss can eventually lead to relief, joy, comfort, and inner peace.
The concert will feature World Premiere and Utah Premiere performances from composers Stephen M. Lounsbrough, David Bennett Thomas, Ambrož Čopi,
Stacey V. Gibbs, and Nancy Wertsch.
Plus works by David Conte, Randall Stroope, Jake Runestad, Jeffrey Ames, David Dickau, Daniel Gawthrop, Craig Courtney, Craig Hella Johnson, Dan Davison, Ronald Staheli, Mack Wilberg, Philip Stopford, Ivo Antognini, Knut Nystedt, and Gerald Finzi.
