The Houston Chamber Choir continues its 2017-2018 season, Revolutionary Sounds: Pioneers and Visionaries. Enter the storytellers’ worlds of wonder through fables, myths, and legends when the Houston Chamber Choir presents Just Imagine! Saturday, April 14 at 7:30pm.
In this program the Chamber Choir performs David Lang’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Little Match Girl Passion, a groundbreaking work praised for its unique purity and beauty inspired by Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and Hans Christian Anderson’s short story.
In lighthearted contrast to The Little Match Girl Passion, two other works of striking originality will be performed, Medieval Bestiary, by Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer, and Irving Fine’s Alice in Wonderland Suite.
