Southern Heat

Imagine a fusion of Central and South American, rhythms, 16th century European polyphony, and Cuban and African influences. This is the music of our exciting opening concert: motets and villancicos from Bolivia, Peru, and Mexico from the 16th & 17th centuries. This concert will feature Orpheus Chamber Singers, fabulous soloists, original choreography, and virtuoso instrumentalists from across the country all in the grand space of Cathedral Guadalupe. Our period instrument orchestra will include cornetti (a cross between a trumpet and oboe), sackbuts, numerous percussion instruments, theorbo, baroque guitar, strings, and organ continuo. Thrilling, grand, humorous, intimate, once-in-a-life-time: this is a perfect way to start our 25th anniversary season.

Orpheus is thrilled to be joined by musicians from Tesserae Baroque, Texas Camerata, and Early Music faculty from the University of North Texas. Original choreography for this concert will be created by the Herrera Dance Project.

Join us in the beautiful, intimate chapel at the Episcopal School of Dallas on December 19th. Buy your tickets early for this memorable program. (Program repeats on December 21 at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church.)

Reflections

Living composers are writing new anthems and motets using 16th and 17th century masterpieces as their inspiration. This entire concert will feature original motets such as J. S. Bach’s ‘Komm, Jesu, komm’, with a reflection by American Ted Hearne, and Allegri’s famous ‘Miserere Mei” with the 7 high C’s, followed by a reflection by British composer Alexander Campkin. To this intriguing program, we’re delighted to welcome two superb High School chamber choirs from Keller and Cedar Hill, singing individually and with Orpheus. And if that’s not enough, we will also premiere a new work by Shavon Lloyd, winner of our inaugural student composition competition.

Mr. Krehbiel is well-known for his creative thematic programming of music across many centuries with a particular love of the ancient and brand new. For the final concert of this season, he has chosen music written within the last ten years to highlight music our current culture is inspiring modern composers to create. Orpheus will present three states of being—LOVE, AWE, and ANGER—with music by Eriks Esenvalds, Ted Hearne, Cecilia McDowell, Jake Runestad, and other renowned, current composers. This will be a thrilling, evocative close to our anniversary season, and one not be to be missed.
