Washington Chorus Performs Music of Grammy-Nominated Tarik O'Regan on 5/8

Location: New York, USA
The Washington Chorus will present a portrait concert of British composer Tarik O'Regan in their award-winning New Music for a New Age series on Thursday, May 8, at the Church of the Epiphany in Washington, DC. The program conveys the captivating range of texts that influence O'Regan's poignant compositions including: 
 
The Ecstasies Above — based on the Edgar Allan Poe lyric poem "Israfel" 
Scattered Rhymes — inspired by 14th-century texts on sensual and divine love 
Now Fatal Change — a 17th-century poem meditating upon a single traumatic moment 
Two Emily Dickinson Settings — "Had I not seen the sun" and "I had no time to hate" 
 
O'Regan is the recipient of two British Composer Awards and is recorded on over 25 albums. The evening will offer an opportunity to get to know this magnetic composer in a live discussion with the group's Music Director, Julian Wachner.
 
One of the leading British composers of his generation — Gramophone 
 
…sounds exquisite and delicate. — The Washington Post
