The Washington Master Chorale opens its 11th season celebrating the brilliant and soaring music of Baltic and Scandinavian composers: Latvian Ēriks Ešenvalds, Norwegian Ola Gjeilo, and Estonian Cyrillus Kreek.
With the northern lights as a backdrop, Illumination is a musical journey across darkness and light. We are reminded that fueling a spark of enlightenment is what will illuminate the world for us all.
Also presented are works by Anton Bruckner, William Harris, Herbert Howells, Morton Lauridsen and Alice Parker.
The streaming event was originally broadcast on October 30, 2020. It features a full virtual chorus as well as a socially distanced chamber choir performing in the Church of the Epiphany in Washington D.C.
