This concert will feature beautiful, joyful, and inspiring music by Dan Forrest, Elaine Hagenberg, William Byrd, Rosephanye Powell, Johannes Brahms, Robert Harris, Susan LaBarr, and more! It is like a new dawn being able to sing and perform for you. We hope to see you at the concert.

Spring 2022: LIGHT ETERNAL

Fall 2021 Banner

Directed by Nathan Payant

FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2022 at 7:00pm
In these challenging times, it has been shown time and again that light prevails over darkness and is a universal symbol of hope and reassurance amidst the unrest. In our second performance this season, Laudamus Chamber Chorale continues with the theme of “Light,” presenting Morten Lauridsen’s transcendent, Lux Aeterna (Light Eternal), accompanied by the wonderful Linda McGinn on organ, along with other reassuring pieces by Brahms, Faure, Powell, and Quartel. The five movements of Lux Aeterna all contain various references to “light,” and the work has very similar qualities to Faure’s Requiem, often described as having “healing powers” for those who perform and listen to it. We are thrilled to welcome special guests from Colorado State University’s Concert Choir, joining us for this performance.

From Our Music Director

I am beyond thrilled to have been appointed as music director of Laudamus Chamber Chorale! As the new director, I look forward to carrying on the rich history of musical excellence and working with the wonderful singers of Laudamus. I am also excited to establish a strong connection with current and former Colorado State University faculty, staff, and students, as well as area elementary and secondary schools. Finally, I am eager to communicate and engage with audiences across Northern Colorado and beyond, through live performances, recordings, and other community partnerships. While things may look a bit different for choral ensembles in the coming year, I am confident that Laudamus Chamber Chorale will emerge performing choral music of the highest quality with more spirit, passion, and joy than ever before!

Yours,
Nathan Payant
