WESTMINSTER CHOIR | LEGENDS

Sponsored By: Charleston Place Hotel

Venue: Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul

Duration: Approximately 1 hour

Overview

The pristine acoustics in the Cathedral Church of St. Luke and St. Paul carry Westminster Choir’s “shimmering sonic alchemy” (The Post and Courier) to their audience’s ears, enabling a truly staggering experience of musical bliss. Under the baton of Spoleto Festival USA’s new Director of Choral Activities Joe Miller, this sublime choral ensemble offers two performances of dazzling repertoire including Daniel Elder’s ethereal and soaring Elegy; Latvian composer Eriks Ešenvalds’s Legend of the Walled-up Woman; Johannes Brahms’s lamenting Nänie; and Maurice Duruflé’s celestial Ubi Caritas.
