Same Light, Different Lanterns: Sacred Music from Around the World
Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16, 2024 | 8 pm

Created by young composer Reena Esmail, “This Love Between Us: Prayers for Unity” was written for choir, chamber orchestra, sitar, and tabla. The sitar and tabla are commonly found in traditional Indian musical culture but rarely used in western classical music. Esmail, an Indian-American, deftly merges these musical traditions into a mesmerizing piece for our times.
     
The first half of the concert will feature Leonard Bernstein’s great “Chichester Psalms,” sung in Hebrew. 

We hope you will join us for this evening of sacred choral music with a global flair.
