SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18, 2023 at 7:00pm
Laudamus Chamber Chorale’s opening concert, Radiant Dawn, includes several stunning pieces by Johannes Brahms, Elaine Hagenberg, James MacMillan, Jocelyn Hagen, Moses Hogan, and more. The centerpiece of the evening is a captivating work by American composer, John Corigliano entitled, Fern Hill. Corigliano originally set this charming poem by Dylan Thomas for mezzo-soprano soloist, SATB chorus, and piano. Later, he created several versions for a different variety of instruments. Our fabulous singers are thrilled to welcome CSU voice instructor, Dr. Nicole Asel, as our mezzo-soprano soloist, as well as many northern Colorado instrumentalists for our presentation of this great work accompanied by chamber orchestra.

Spring 2024: LUX

Directed by Nathan Payant

SUNDAY, APRIL 21, 2024 at 4:00pm
Our second concert of the 2023-24 season will feature movements Dan Forrest’s ethereal and beautiful, LUX: The Dawn From On High. Once again, we will be collaborating with a professional chamber orchestra made up of fantastic instrumentalists from Northern Colorado. This is also one of the pieces that many of our singers will perform at Carnegie Hall this April with our Artistic Director on the podium. Rounding out the concert are several pieces by up and coming composers, Dale Trumbore, Jonathan Reid, and Zanaida Robles, as well as set of Mendelssohn “favorites” and a captivating work by John Muehleisen called Snow (The King’s Trumpeter). We are excited to feature CSU trumpet professor, Stanley Curtis, on this piece.

From Our Artistic Director

Come be a part of the excitement!

Many of us are still on cloud nine after last spring’s performance of Mozart’s monumental Requiem for a sold out audience. It was a personal mountaintop experience for me, and I want to thank all of the performers and each one of you who helped make the concert possible. Looking ahead, I am filled with just as much excitement for our 2023–24 season and want to invite you to be a part of it!

We have already begun rehearsals for our first concert, Radiant Dawn, and I must say, the ensemble sounds fantastic! This concert includes several stunning pieces by Johannes Brahms, Elaine Hagenberg, James MacMillan, Jocelyn Hagen, Moses Hogan, and more. The centerpiece of the evening is one of my personal favorites – a captivating work by American composer, John Corigliano, called Fern Hill, scored for SATB chorus, mezzo-soprano soloist, and chamber orchestra. We are thrilled to feature CSU voice instructor, Dr. Nicole Asel, as well as many northern Colorado instrumentalists on this concert. Then in April 2024, I will be conducting Dan Forrest’s stunning work for chorus and orchestra entitled LUX: The Dawn From On High at Carnegie Hall in New York City and sharing the experience with many of our Laudamus singers. Later that month, we will celebrate with an encore performance, featuring several movements from the same piece in Fort Collins. These are two concerts you won’t want to miss!

We have ambitious plans for this season and lofty goals for the future. Without support from our generous patrons, it would be impossible to continue to bring great performances to you year after year. Your financial contributions will go toward purchasing music, hiring guest performers, reserving venues for concerts, hiring a fully professional orchestra for both concerts, supporting our CSU choral scholars, and overall operating expenses. Visit the ‘Support’ page on our website, www.Laudamus.org/support, to make a contribution online, or if you prefer, you can use the return envelope included with this letter to mail in a donation. Laudamus Chamber Chorale is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose donations can be tax deductible. You will receive a letter of acknowledgment for your gift and your name will be listed in our season programs. Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Warm regards,

Nathan Payant
