Beauty Surrounds Us With Equality and Peace
Spring is a time of renewal, of fresh starts, of new life. Spring inspires expectation, awakens the spirit, and stimulates the senses. The desire for equality and peace form the core of our singing in this series of concerts. To paraphrase, where there is peace, beauty, and where there is equality, joy.
We sing to remind ourselves of what is most important – that is to love one another, to rejoice in our differences, to celebrate all humankind, to lift the lowly, embrace the downtrodden, include the marginalized, and pray for peace in every corner of the world. We sing to remind ourselves that the human voice can be an instrument of beauty and joy. We sing to remind ourselves that composers have been telling this same story for centuries. We sing to remind ourselves that the journey to equality and peace is ours if we choose it. And we sing because we must.
Cantus Novus is pleased to present to you a concert of music across the ages. From the golden age of the Renaissance to Bach and the Beatles, the program celebrates diversity in style, compositional form, text, and dynamic expression. Be surrounded by messages of hope, resilience, encouragement, and spirit. Let yourself be surrounded by beauty at our Cantus Novus spring concerts.
