Darke Hall
× The Cecilian Chamber Series presents the fourth concert of the 2022-2023 season, "Featuring the Fazioli".

With this program, Nicolas Namoradze pays tribute to György Ligeti, whose 100th birthday we celebrate in 2023. The first half approaches his iconic piano etudes from both past and present: a selection of etudes is interspersed with excerpts from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier, works central to the birth of the “keyboard study,” and some of Namoradze’s own etudes, pieces deeply inspired by Ligeti’s works in the genre. The second half presents Schubert’s final sonata, a work that Ligeti studied, played, and loved—a relationship immortalized by a photo of the composer playing the piano in his Hamburg home, with this sonata on the music stand.

Ticket prices are $55 for Level 1 seating, $50 for Level 2 seating, and $20 for Students. Prices do not include fees or taxes.

Cecilian Chamber Series - Calmus Ensemble Sunday, April 16, 2023 at 3:00 PM CST

Darke Hall
× The Cecilian Chamber Series presents the sixth concert of the 2022-2023 season, "Landmarks".

A landmark can be described as a milestone, a symbol or a point of reference. But when does music reach that landmark status, where it is recognized as an important milestone or symbol? Calmus shows numerous points of reference in this truly international program, as we sing music from nine countries in six different languages! Focused on repertoire written within the last 150 years (certainly an important landmark of time!), Calmus looks at music connected by matters of style, and also music that reflects matters of community… music that recalls the past, along with music that looks to the future with a fresh perspective. This colorful program contains echoes of the Renaissance and the ballads of Sting, folk music with minimalistic elements by Veljo Tormis and folk-like melodies in typical harmonies by Francis Poulenc. We also follow the path of Jewish songwriters from Poland (Mordechaj Gebirtig) and Canada (Leonard Cohen), until we finally celebrate rhythmic melodies from Latin America. Please join us on this journey as we survey these musical landmarks!

Featuring Elisabeth Mücksch, soprano, Maria Kalmbach, alto, Friedrich Bracks, tenor, Jonathan Saretz, baritone and Michael B. Gernert, bass.

Ticket prices are $55 for Level 1 seating, $50 for Level 2 seating, and $20 for Students. Prices do not include fees or taxes.
