We journeyed through time with music that evokes the spirit of the new day and shares the wonder of night’s star-filled heavens. Audiences enjoyed classic choral works by Barber, Brahms, Finzi, Mendelssohn, Pachelbel, and Rachmaninoff and the premiere of Scott Howard Eggert’s “Teach Me Your Mood,” commissioned by Heritage Chorale.
The Chorale wraped listeners in the warmth of tradition with selections ranging from love ballads to gospel songs composed or arranged by American composers, including Aaron Copland, Norman Dello Joio, Joseph Jennings, Moses Hogan, and Leonard Bernstein. Robert Ray’s Gospel Mass was the featured work.
