Voices of Concinnity & Unitus Ensemble present STARS ARE FOR ALL WHO LOOK UP

Apr 09, 2022

Saturday, April 9 at 7pm – WOVEN SKIES CONCERT SERIES #1:

STARS ARE FOR ALL WHO LOOK UP

This concert will capture your sense of awe and wonder with beautiful, celestial choral music underneath the stars.

Gazing upon the night sky can inspire us to write prose, compose songs, or find spiritual connection.  Did you know that not everyone has access to viewing the night sky?  This celestial choral concert will use music and accompanying celestial projections in the wonderful indoor performance space at the Charter Oak Cultural Center in Hartford as a way to explore the equity of access to the night sky.

This special collaborative in-person performance will feature Voices of Concinnity and special guest Unitus Ensemble.  Celestial projections will accompany reflective and thought-provoking choral music about the night sky performed by these two accomplished vocal ensembles, including works by Erik Esenvalds, Laura Mvula, Saunder Choi, Fanny Hensel, Marques L.A. Garrett, and more.

TICKETS: $15 / CLICK HERE (Tickets on sale 3/11)

ABOUT WOVEN SKIES CONCERT SERIES

Woven Skies Concert Series presented by Consonare Choral Community and featuring Voices of Concinnity will be presented as three (3) separate concert live and in-person collaborations. Why “Woven Skies”?  The idea was to craft a program to encourage the audience draw their eyes upward to remind us of our shared humanity.  The orbits and paths of celestial entities are intertwined and intersect, much like the woven threads of fabric.  The sky should be a reflection of our connection here on earth since we all look up at the same stars and rely on the gift of the same sun. But, injustice stands in our way.  Our Woven Skies Concert Series will feature collaborations to illuminate through choral music how turning our eyes to the celestial can build community here on earth.
