Composers dating from Vivaldi to Barry Manilow have drawn inspiration from nature and, in particular, the change of seasons. Music Director Al Sturgis has assembled a wonderfully eclectic program of season-themed choral gems from old composers of note such as Haydn, Grieg, Elgar, and Debussy to some of the most notable composers of today like Jake Runestad, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Chen Yi, Morton Lauridsen, and Eric Whitacre. Composers from the worlds of gospel, pop, tango, and musical theatre will be featured as well.
