EVENT: The Gift of Life @ Libby Gardner Concert Hall (Oct. 14)

Join us for our opening concert of the 2017-18 season!
ONCE IN ISRAEL by Marie Nelson Bennett
A multi-movement oratorio scored for chorus, orchestra and soloists. Based on poetry by Emma Lou Thayne, the dramatic oratorio describes the author’s visit to Israel, the impressions of her arrival and being a woman there, the harshness of war, the beauty of the Beatitudes, and the peace of a Beduin mother’s lullaby.

VISIONS by John Rutter
A four-movement showpiece for solo violin in unique combination with women’s choir, harp, and strings. Inspired by the idea of 'Jerusalem' both as a Holy City and a utopian ideal of heavenly peace and seraphic bliss.
featuring Jenny Oaks Baker, violin
THE GIFT OF LIFE: SIX CANTICLES OF CREATION by John Rutter
The Utah premiere of selections from this six-movement choral celebration of the living earth and its creation performed by mixed choir and chamber orchestra.
