The Houston Chamber Choir opens its season with the world premiere of Two Streams, a cantata scored for choir and string orchestra composed by the brilliant young American composer, Daniel Knaggs. Based on Biblical texts and the writings of Polish nun Saint Faustina, this 70-minute work was composed in memory of the composer’s father. Joining us are Kinetic, the dynamic Houston-based string ensemble, and international soloists Caitlin Aloia, soprano; Sasha Cooke, mezzo-soprano; Christopher Bozeka, tenor; and Mark Diamond, baritone. Following the performance, these forces will reassemble in Rice University’s Stude Concert Hall to make the world premiere recording produced by Grammy® Award-winning producer Blanton Alspaugh.
