The pandemic prompted a major change in the way we went about our regular routines of singing: masks in rehearsal and performance, vaccination assurances, physical distancing among singers as well as patrons, shorter rehearsals, and performances without intermission. For much of the past year we performed songs that looked inward, affirming the faith that one day we would sing again. We end our 51st season in praise of the art that inspires our continued dedication and allegiance in a program that features Handel’s exultant Coronation Anthem No. 1, Dello Joio’s To Saint Cecilia (accompanied by a brass decet, yes, that’s 10 brass players), Vaughan Williams’s justly celebrated Serenade to Music, and the premiere of Keven Siegfried’s Cadenza, a sonic composition (wordless) inspired by J. Barrie Shepherd’s poem of the same name.
