Winter Concert: Darkness and Light
Sunday, March 11th at 5PM
Judson Memorial Church
55 Washington Square South (at Thompson)
Join us for this program exploring the spiritual dynamics between light and darkness, joy and sorrow, triumph and loss, through two contemporary works for chorus and orchestra.
Scottish composer James MacMillan’s deeply personal Seven Last Words from the Cross weaves the spare and meditative with the soaring and complex in an emotional journey toward calm and acceptance. In Lux Aeterna, Morton Lauridsen’s lush setting of sacred texts, the prominent American composer seamlessly integrates Renaissance polyphony and Romantic lyricism with the unique tensions of his modern chord structures to create a luminous, ultimately optimistic work known to bring audiences to tears. Complementing these two different works, we offer Samuel Barber’s moving and much-loved Adagio for Strings.
In all: a balm for the soul in troubled times like these.

We’re thrilled to bring back to Judson our tremendously popular benefit evening of wine and opera pairings, Viva Vino, on Wednesday, April 25th at 6:30PM.
Our singing sommelier, Patrick Watson of Brooklyn’s Smith and Vine and Stinky Bklyn will be back to guide us through another flight of wines matched to arias and songs performed by some of our favorite artists, including Carin Gilfry, Laura Green, Melissa Cintron-Gabriel, and Rachel Zatcoff. (And of course you can count on your hosts the WVC to lead a number—and a toast—or two!)
General Admission: $60 (a portion is tax-deductible)
