Everything is Made of Light

  1. Thursday October 17 7:00pm
Museum of Art

Eugene Rogers, conductor
Scott Van Ornum, accompanist

Conceived in connection with Collection Ensemble, the recent re-installation of UMMA’s historic Apse, this program of sacred and spiritual music weaves together radiant sonorities and shimmering timbres that play on the installation’s celebration and critique of community, faith, and the spaces that hold us. Led by SMTD director of choirs, Prof. Eugene Rogers, the U-M Chamber Choir presents a concert with works from around the globe, including a world premiere by Brehm Prize winner, SMTD composition graduate student Ari Sussman.
