Cantus Discovery of Light

7:30pm EST March 8, 2018

Hailed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), and winner of the prestigious Margaret Hillis Award for Choral Excellence from Chorus America, Cantus is acknowledged around the world for its programmatic versatility, artistic excellence and charismatic personality. Light is an integral part of life, from controlling our daily habits and cycles to providing nourishment, warmth, and protection. But what happens when light is taken away, or restored? We’ve all experienced personal “sunrises” or “twilight hours,” or moments when we realize the impact of vision in new ways. With seasoned masterpieces—like Richard Strauss’ Traumlicht and Franz Schubert’s Die Nacht—plus pieces that break new ground, including Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque and a brand new commission from Gabriel Kahane, Discovery of Light revels in the mystery, science, and poetry of what it means to truly “see.”
