Event Description

All Souls produced by Scott Gendel.  No tickets required – free to the public.

On Sunday, April 28, 2013, the All Souls Choir and Chamber Orchestra will premiere a new choral-orchestral work by award-winning composer Scott Gendel. Commissioned by All Souls Church and written specifically for the All Souls Choir, this new work explores a vision of the beloved community and the broken world that we are called to heal as members of the great family of all souls. Setting texts by Langston Hughes, Wendell Berry, and William Ellery Channing, the 35-minute work will be the centerpiece of our services. Along with this new music, the All Souls Chamber Orchestra will perform music by Arvo Pärt and Samuel Barber. Please join us at 9:30 or 11:15 am to be among the first to hear this great new work. It is a service you will not want to miss.
