“Illumination” – The confluence of light (and enlightenment) with music is front and center for this unique program.

The music then moves into the world of the illumination of the human soul, with brilliant works by Bach and Valerie Coleman, and culminating with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Michael Colgrass’ monumental Winds of Nagual.
