October 2018 Music Notes

Blog category: 

On October 21, the choir will sing Refugee, an anthem by contemporary choral composer Moira Smiley. According to the composer, "we are all much closer to being refugees than we want to imagine. Realizing this may remind us of our humanity..."  

The choir also sings on October 28. Safe Places of the Heart is also by two living composers: Robert Cohen and Ronald Cadmus (lyricist). This piece was written as a response to the Orlando nightclub shootings of 2016, and is meant as an affirmation of "freedom, mutual respect and trust."
