For its Winter concert season, Polyhymnia presents classical choral repertoire from many times and traditions.
Commemorating the centenary of the First World War, we offer “Music and Musicians of the Great War”, with music by composers writing during that time and even serving in the conflict: Rachmaninoff, Ravel, Vaughan Williams and George Butterworth.
“Music for the Magi” presents music for Epiphany from the 14th and 16th century, some quiet and meditative, and some lively, even boisterous.
Rounding out the program will be part songs by Irish composer Charles Villiers Stanford, and Three Nocturnes by 20th century Mexican composer Carlos Chavez.
All performances are free.
