With this concert, Groundhog Day will have just passed, and with it the debate about when Winter will finally come to an end. Winter’s Passing will try to musically illustrate the transition from Winter to the often more highly regarded season, Spring. The centerpiece of this program is Morten Lauridsen’s Mid-Winter Songs, a cycle of five pieces that highlight our phenomenal pianist, Stella Pradeau. Other featured composers include John Rutter and Paul Hindemith. Come reflect on the season that has passed, and think on the season that is to come.
