Miller Auditorium

Creating ballet of the imagination. Ravel’s greatest orchestral score comes to life as the KSO  and the Bach Festival Chorus tells the story of Daphnis and Chloé, two shepherds who fall in love and face adventures and adversity, abduction by pirates, and finally are reunited by the kind grace of the god Pan. The story is told in music, with supertitles guiding the audience through the fanciful tale. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 opens the concert with music that was featured in the celebrated film, “Elvira Madigan.”

Transcendence

Spring Chorus Concert

with the Kalamazoo Philharmonia

Saturday, 

May 30, 2020

7:30 pm

Chenery Auditorium

MAP

Bach Festival Chorus, Chris Ludwa, conductor

Kalamazoo Philharmonia, Andrew Koehler, conductor

Nielsen:  Symphony No. 3 "Espansiva"

Vaughan Williams:  Toward the Unknown Region

Brahms:  Schicksalslied

This concert puts aside ideological debates and finds common ground in what it means to be human.  The first half, led by Philharmonia music director Andrew Koehler, will feature the uncategorizable music of Carl Nielsen, whose Third Symphony has moments that contrast, in the composer’s own words, “the gust of energy and life affirmation blown out into the wide world” with “the purest idyll, the peaceful mood…in Paradise.”  Bach Festival Music Director Christopher Ludwa will conduct the second half of the program in stunning choral works by Vaughan Williams and Brahms, both of which muse on what lies ahead after our time on earth.

Join us for a  pre-concert talk at 6:30 pm in Chenery's corner reception room.
