As Nicholas McGegan sets off on his final season as Music Director, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw returns with her most ambitious project yet for the Orchestra & Chorale—a cosmic reflection inspired by Carl Sagan’s Golden Record, and by humankind’s fascination with recording ourselves for posterity. The otherworldly voices of contralto Avery Amereau and bass-baritone Dashon Burton, interwoven with curated selections played on record player, all contribute to this monumental work featuring the profound words of Walt Whitman and Alfred Lord Tennyson. Paired with Handel’s expansive Eternal Source of Light Divine featuring countertenor Reginald Mobley, this performance will leave you contemplating what it means to create music, and who will listen tomorrow.
