A Colorado holiday tradition! Celebrate the season with mysterious medieval harmonies, joyous polyphony from the Renaissance, and modern carols, presented with unique Ars Nova flair. Featured works include Renaissance masterpieces by John Plummer and Robert Parsons; Jean Berger’s vibrant setting of the Magnificat for soprano, flute, percussion, and choir; works for viola and choir by Ola Gjeilo and John Ferguson; music by Poulenc, Kverno, and more.
Artistic Director Thomas Edward Morgan: “Our annual holiday program is recognized for providing unusual, rarely-heard music for the season. This is a challenging concert to assemble, constructing a program that balances novelty and tradition, mystery and jubilation, familiar melodies with innovative new sounds.” Join us!
“…A fresh, fascinating yule program that transports listeners around the world and centuries back in time.” – The Denver Post
