Choral music inspired by troubled times, transformed into universal visions for peace and renewal. Katherine FitzGibbon, Director of Choral Activities at Lewis and Clark College, conducts Vaughan Williams’ impassioned Dona Nobis Pacem and Damien Geter’s Cantata for a More Hopeful Tomorrow, inspired by Bach and African-American spirituals. Together, these works provide a timely and eloquent choral response to the challenges we have all recently experienced.

Our week in the heart of California’s gorgeous Wine Country will be based on campus at Sonoma State University. Most afternoons will offer free time to explore wineries, historic Sonoma Plaza, and the region’s natural splendors. State-of-the-art Weill Hall at Green Music Center was designed by architect William Rawn to replicate the intimacy and acoustics of Vienna’s Musikverein and was aesthetically modeled after Seiji Ozawa Hall at Tanglewood. The Santa Rosa Symphony will be our guest orchestra for the concert.
