The Seraphim Singers kicks off its 2017-2018 Season with a concert in commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation:
Reformation/Counter-Reformation: Rupture and Continuity in Sacred Music
November 4, 2017 at the Church of Saint Ignatius of Loyola in Chestnut Hill.
This performance will include organ improvisation by Peter Krasinski, Durufle’s Requiem, and key works of the Reformation period and will be preceded by a panel discussion.
This concert is supported by a Major Grant from the Boston College Institute for the Liberal Arts.
As part of our ongoing celebration of our 20th Anniversary and our commitment to new music, we will premiere a newly commissioned piece from composer
Christine Whitten Thomas in February, 2018. Date and location TBA.
Our 2018 spring concert will bring our anniversary celebrations to a close with a program of our favorite past commissions alongside other beloved works of sacred music.
Complete season information will be released in August, so please join our email list and check back in with us for full details on our upcoming season.
As we embark on the observance of this milestone, we seek your help in order to enter our third decade on a strong financial footing. This will ensure our future as an outstanding choral ensemble in Boston that draws out the connections between the old and the new, the aesthetic and the spiritual. This has been our hallmark identity, delivered in nuanced performances of music both surprising and familiar, but always challenging and rewarding, over the past 19 years.
At times the world and our lives can be in a state of cacophony. Together, over the din, let us employ the power and magic of music to provide clarity and harmony, to sooth and inspire the human spirit, and to lend hope for the days to come.
