Vox Nova Chamber Choir and INTIMA present “Winter Solstice” Concert

Vox Nova Chamber Choir and INTIMA present their second of a four-concert series with performances Saturday, January 20, 2018 at 7:30 PM at The Franco Center, 46 Cedar St. in Lewiston and Sunday, January 21, at 3:00 PM at Studzinski Recital Hall, Bowdoin College, Brunswick.

The music for Winter Solstice heavily evokes both the wildness of nature and the cultivated aspects of the season. Stephen Paulus’ “Evensong” and “Auld Lang Syne “are seasonal and the other repertoire is natural and highlights the extreme beauty of northern landscapes: Ēriks Eŝenvalds’ “Northern Lights,” Ola Gjeilo’s “Tundra,” “Winter Light” for Chorus and String Quartet by Michael Gandolfi, John Muehleisin’s “Snow” and others will create a vivid, wintry landscape for the audience.

Vox Nova Chamber Choir (Est. 2009) under the direction of Dr. Shannon M. Chase, champions the expansive body of modern and contemporary choral repertory
