CCS will present a performance showcasing the merging of choral music and poetry from around the world. Our World Through Poetry will be presented the same weekend as UNESCO’s annual World Poetry Day, which recognizes that “poetry is the mainstay of oral tradition and can communicate the innermost values of diverse cultures.”
This performance will feature world-renowned composer Morton Lauridsen’s “Four Madrigals from Renaissance Texts,” a blend of Italian poetry and contemporary harmonics.
