In Terra Pax (Peace On Earth)
Saturday ● December 16, 2017 ● 7:30 pm First Unitarian Society Atrium Auditorium Madison, Wisconsin
According to the New York Times: "Of the past 3400 years, humans have been entirely at peace for 268 of  them."  The Wisconsin Chamber Choir explores the hope of centuries for "peace and good will to all people." The centerpiece of the WCC’s 2017 holiday concert is Gerald Finzi’s lyrical retelling of the Christmas story, In terra pax, featuring baritone and soprano soloists with members of Sinfonia Sacra, our own chamber orchestra. Complementing Finzi’s music are Mendelssohn’s moving prayer for peace, Verleih uns Frieden and the energetic Gloria from J. S. Bach’s Mass in A major (also with Sinfonia Sacra).
Additionally the choir presents a moving Libby Larsen piece entitled Cry Peace, and Giles Swayne’s timely and haunting Winter Solstice Carol:
"Now, at the dead end of the year,
The nights are long, the days are cold:
we cry for help, but who will hear?"
Settings of favorite seasonal carols round out the program including a lovely arrangement of Silent Night by one of our favorite cotemporary composers, Peter Bloesch, and the show stopping spiritual, Behold The Star by William Dawson.  
Advance tickets are on sale now via Brown Paper Tickets for $20 Adults / $10 Students. Tickets may also be purchased at our local ticket outlets (All three Willy Street Coop stores, and Orange Tree Imports).

A celebration of music of all the Americas—North and South—and all Americans.
In recognition of Robert Gehrenbeck’s tenth anniversary as Artistic Director, the WCC has commissioned a new work, Alleluia, by New York-based composer and Juilliard faculty member Wayne Oquin. Inspired by Randall Thompson’s classic setting of the same one-word text, Oquin’s new version will update Thompson’s musical style in his own, unique harmonic language. One of today’s most talented choral composers, Oquin’s style bears similarities to Morton Lauridsen’s, whose music will also appear on the program.
Also featuring such American masterpieces as Samuel Barber’s Reincarnations, Charles Ives’ Psalm 67, and works by Alice Parker, Moses Hogan, and George Gershwin, as well as music of Latin-American, African-American, and Native-American composers. Advance tickets are on sale now via Brown Paper Tickets for $20 Adults / $10 Students. Tickets will be sold at our local ticket outlets (Willy Street Co-op and Orange Tree Imports) approximately two weeks before the concert. Tickets will be sold at the door for a slightly higher cost for adults: $25 Adults / $10 Students.
