2022-2023 Concerts - Our 41st Season
Old World, New Worlds
Our December concert has some familiar offerings and some pieces new to Cantemus. The Old World music of Western Europe meets New World repertoire of the Americas and East Asia; ancient texts are set to modern music; and the heritages of Christmas and Chanukah celebration are presented in traditional and contemporary modes.
Performances took place on December 3 & 4, 2022.
The Poet's Prism
In the spring, we explore repertoire based on poetry that relies on nature imagery. It isn't an "in praise of nature” concert, but explores some ways that poets and composers have used nature imagery and metaphors to express ideas about love and life. Sometimes the images are straightforward, but other times the simple nature poetry masks a deeper, often political meaning. It is a varied and challenging program with a little something for every taste.
Performances took place on April 29 & 30, 2023.
