From Despair…Light! May 2021
May 1, 2021 - May 31, 2021
For centuries, composers have used music to help us process our feelings, thoughts, fears, and joys. As our world emerges from the tragedy that the COVID-19 pandemic has shrouded us in, Albany Pro Musica will take you on an emotional journey from fear, conflict, and death to joy, peace, love, and redemption. This concert will feature the world premiere of a newly commissioned piece by APM’s Composer-in-Residence, Bradley Ellingboe, as well as compositions by Morten Lauridsen, Arvo Pärt, Eric Whitacre, Jake Runestad, Stephen Paulus, and Steve Murray.
