  • St. Phillip's Episcopal Coral Gables, FL (map)

Ensemble: Seraphic Fire
Conductor: Julian Wachner

More Info: Morten Lauridsen’s Chansons de Roses(Rose Songs) headline this in-depth exploration of musical modernism in the Americas. From Lauridsen to South American composers such as Heitor Villa-Lobos and Alberto Ginastera, each created music that elegantly combined the native tunes of their homelands with more traditional European styles. Julian Wachner, Music Director of Trinity Wall Street Choir, conducts and accompanies Seraphic Fire in a program that will include Mr. Wachner’s own compositions.
