In March, we’ll offer Michael Galib’s Different Ways to Pray, a setting of Naomi Shihab Nye’s extraordinary poem, composed just for the Providence Singers.
In May, you’ll hear Ola Gjeilo’s Westminster Bridge, a setting of William Wordsworth’s poem. Gjeilo’s composition will be the third work commissioned through the Providence Singers’ Wachner Fund for New Music. The Aurea Ensemble joins us for the program.
You’ll meet some old friends along the way — Edvard Grieg, Charles Ives, Jean Sibelius, Leonard Bernstein — and lots of great composers you could be hearing for the first time.
