Geneva Music Festival 2023: Gods, Myths and the Divine
Music and faith have been closely linked throughout history, often reinforcing and inspiring one another. In his fourth-century autobiography Confessions, Saint Augustine described how the singing of hymns moved him spiritually and emotionally. Composers have continued to create countless works devoted to, animated by, or in service of their religious beliefs. This season, join us for an exploration of the deep and fruitful relationship between music and the Divine.
Friday, June 9, repeat performance on Saturday, June 10 In Concordia
Clara Lyon, Geoffrey Herd, violin; Tanner Menees, viola; Hannah Collins,
Clive Greensmith, cello; Anna Petrova, piano
Gearan Center, 7:30 pm
In Concordia celebrates harmony, both musical and spiritual. In their original vocal form, hymns join a congregation together in song; here, composers transcribe and expand these beloved melodies. GMF resident artists traverse Christian musical practices from Latin plainsong to Lutheran chorales in works by Bach, Haydn, Elgar and Kodaly.
All programs subject to change.
