NWCC 2016-2017 Season



December concerts




"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before." Leonard Bernstein's poignant words in response to the assassination of John F. Kennedy echo defiantly today. As we approach Christmas, a season of love, empathy and peace, we draw inspiration from Bernstein's pledge. We believe that the passion and power of our music can bring forth hope and faith, and that the fear and anger in our world can be overcome by a true Season of Peace. Included in the program are pieces by Arvo Pärt, Herbert Howells, and Morten Lauridsen, plus our traditional carol sing-along.

March concerts




With his first command, God created light. From that moment on, light has been a potent metaphor and strong spiritual symbol of virtue: it's better to light one candle; we shed light on things that are unclear; we bring new ideas to light. Choirs sing songs of sunrise, moonlight, eternal light, darkness, and rainbows of color. Lighten your load and experience the shimmering music of light. Composers in this program include Francis Poulenc, Latvian Eriks Esenvalds, and Americans Eric Whitacre and Philip Glass.

June Concerts




USA, Canada, South America, the Caribbean. All are part of the Americas. As we prepare for our summer tour of the Baltic nations, we'll revel in music of our own hemisphere. Much of the music we'll take with us on tour will be from American masters – composers who continue to reshape our musical world. Join us as we celebrate the work of Alice Parker, Oscar Escalada, Morten Lauridsen, Randall Thompson, and Eric William Barnum. Special guest saxophonist Michael Brockman adds his artistry to this program.
