As a chill hits the air, wrap yourself in the warm sounds of choral music and recall times when the kindness of others created a path out of loneliness. Sit back and enjoy two premieres that chart a course from solitude to security using singing as a compass. Bob Chilcott’s The Voyage unites voices from three generations to amplify ageless truths, while Quilt Songs stitches together works created by contemporary quilter Kay McCarthy, timeless poetry, and the music of five prominent women composers (Carol Barnett, Ysaÿe Barnwell, Gabriela Frank, Libby Larsen, and Alice Parker) to celebrate the seasons of life. Hear excerpts from the Bard himself on the subject, as new Guthrie Theater director Joseph Haj reads famous Shakespearean monologues commemorating the 400th anniversary of his death.
