George Walker (1922-2018)

Songs of Sorrow, Songs of Hope

Saturday, May 22, at 9:00 pm CT

Inspired by sacred music, this program looks toward a brighter tomorrow after a year filled with uncertainty. Stirring selections from Sergei Rachmaninoff’s piano compositions and George Walker’s First String Quartet lead the program, along with the world premiere performance of American Indian composer Brent Michael Davids’ new work for solo flute. We will conclude with Franz Joseph Haydn’s series of seven musical meditations on Christ’s final words.

We dedicate this program to the memory of George Floyd.
