Wicker Park Choral Singers invite you to join them on March 27 for a journey through a day's most intriguing hours. Dusk 'til Dawn, the ensemble's second concert of the 2009-10 season, will take listeners on a one-hour musical exploration of sunset, sunrise, and all that lies between.
Dusk 'til Dawn joins diverse musical selections--spanning genres, continents and centuries--to explore not only the passing of time, but the many different sentiments these times of day represent. Sunset brings both lullabies and reflections on death, dark night offers deep dreams and mournful solitude, and sunrise heralds hope and rebirth.
Highlights of Dusk 'til Dawn include Ethan Perry's "Desh," an Indian raga and lullaby arranged for chorus; Eric Whitacre's "Sleep," an enchanting immersion into the precipice between waking and sleeping; and György Ligeti's "Éjszaka" (Night) and "Reggel" (Morning), both unconventional and charming explorations of evening's solitude and morning's vigor. There will be a light reception after the concert. Admission is free and open to the public.
