In the final presentation of The Boston Cecilia’s 143rd season, we combine two foundational musical forms, the chamber chorus and the string quartet, reimagined and combined by living American and British composers. Featuring John Corligliano’s breakout triumph, Fern Hill, Tarik O’Regan’s thrilling Triptych, and music of current choral stars, Jake Runestad and Eric Whitacre, this concert captures that which has sustained American music throughout the 20th and 21st centuries: our optimism, our indomitable spirit, and our idealism. This is our American Story.

John Corigliano - Fern Hill
Jake Runestad - Hope of Loving
