The Esoterics unites with Skyros String Quartet to present vivid choral settings of poetry in pursuit of the divine; with rapturous texts from medieval Germany, post-industrial-revolution New England, and contemporary Seattle and Nebraska. The a cappella portion of the program includes Pulitzer-winner Aaron Jay Kernis’ "Ecstatic meditations" (1999) and Eric Banks’ "I am among them" (2014). Skyros joins in for Tarik O’Regan’s "The ecstasies above" (2006) and Charlie Leftridge’s "Of seasons have I sung" (2015). Click the banner for more information on this exhilarating program!
