ChoralArt Camerata

Director’s Notes, Robert Russell: ChoralArt Camerata concludes the season with a program featuring Mozart’s Vesperae Solennes de Confessore, K. 339, a stunning six-movement work setting texts from the traditional Gregorian Vespers service. Guest pianist Amanda Raymond will accompany the fifteen voices of the Camerata. The second half of the program features modern works revolving around an ancient theme: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The centerpiece of the modern programming is Eric Whitacre’s Leonardo Dreams of His Flying Machine, a choral work that dramatizes Leonardo da Vinci’s speculation about the possibility of human flight, three centuries before the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk. It is a stunning work that music director Robert Russell believes to be the best American a cappella composition of the new millennium.
