This season’s musical elixir gives us an opportunity to contemplate, to remember, and to revel in the beauties of the natural world.

We will immerse ourselves in a sound-world that evokes scenes and memories of the past – memories of English folk-song that inspire and move us with their beauty and emotional associations. We will experience music that reminds us of our place in the natural world: the wonders of bird-song and landscape that heal and bring us peace as we commune with the natural environment and bring our bodies in sync with its rhythms.

We will feel empathy with those who suffered in wars and yet held on to their resolve and survived, clinging to their beliefs, memories, and visions.

We will be energized with the zest for life, with the playfulness and mercurial changes that are the hallmark of Korngold’s musical personality, together with exquisite moments of utter peace and contemplation, and a kaleidoscope of sonorities that rivals the complexity and beauty of the world around us.

Please join us this season in enjoying this musical elixir!
