Cantus Novus spreads its wings in our 2017–2018 season, with its most dynamic range of repertoire and accompaniment yet, all grounded by the intimate a capella choral works and vibrant performances our audiences have come to expect.
Lenny and the Boys May 4, 5, 6, 2018
It’s hard to imagine a more joyful way to welcome spring back to Bucks County—and celebrate the 100th year of Leonard Bernstein’s birth—than with the legendary composer’s beloved Chichester Psalms accompanied by harp, timpani and organ. Penned in the 1960s when Bernstein was also composing for Broadway, the Chichester Psalms treat the listener to a fascinating juxtaposition of sacred melodies set against jazz-like rhythms and sounds. Cantus Novus will also perform traditional settings of the psalm texts to complement Bernstein’s masterwork.
Our spring concert will also honor two of Bucks County’s native sons, Oscar Hammerstein and Stephen Sondheim. The program will feature many of their well-known Broadway tunes, interpreted with the singular energy and joy of Cantus Novus. Join us, along with Lenny and the Boys, for a musical journey that will inspire your spirit and leave you humming familiar phrases well into summertime.
