O Mother, Where Art Thou?
Around the World in Search of Mary

Journey with us as we follow the Virgin Mary around the world and through the ages, in songs from Medieval Europe, modern-day Japan, and everything in between!  We'll be joined by a trio of harp, guitar, and marimba for California composer Conrad Susa's luscious Carols and Lullabies: Christmas in the Southwest, and you'll hear works by Poulenc, Praetorius, and many more as well.

American Anthems
Bernstein and Beyond

"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before."  So said Leonard Bernstein, whose magnificant Chichester Psalms will highlight this very special performance with our guests, the Bel Canto chamber choir of MenAlive: The Orange County Gay Men's Chorus (Bob Gunn, Artistic Director), and a top-notch instrumental ensemble.  More American choral classics--from the concert hall and the stage--round out this unforgettable program.
