LUX: The Dawn From On High is Dan Forrest's third major work for chorus and orchestra, (after Requiem For the Living and Jubilate Deo). This five-movement work explores various facets of LUX (Latin for “light”), in texts ranging from ancient liturgical chant to Scripture to modern secular love poetry. Other works on this concert feature holiday favorites and another community collaboration with the Exaltation Ringers of First Presbyterian Church joining PCS in singing “Ring Out, Ye Bells,” a new choral work by Marques L. A. Garret, Samuel Carlton, and Dan Forrest.
While PCS is offering complimentary admission in Season 41, the contributions of our concert patrons are greatly appreciated and will be collected at each concert. PCS will also be collecting non-perishable food items to benefit the Food Pantry of Maple Springs United Methodist Church.
