About the Concert

Darkness meets light in this magical program! Whether it's a Bohemian overture that says life is a bustling carnival, an Argentinean composer probing weighty poems in Spanish, Yiddish, and by Emily Dickinson, or a 20th-Century Russian composer's take on the 17th century's most famous English play, this concert brings together many of the diverse voices that sing together to tell the human story: our overarching goal for this season.

Featuring: actors from the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company
