The Spoleto Festival USA Chorus, composed of gifted vocal fellows from across the nation, celebrates its third season with two highly anticipated programs.

The Deer’s Cry — May 31, Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul
In the glorious acoustics of the beautiful candlelit Cathedral of St. Luke and St. Paul, the Spoleto Festival USA Chorus blends the atmospheric music of Arvo Pärt with two iconic composers of early music, Josquin des Prez and Heinrich Schütz. Pärt’s The Deer’s Cry and The Woman with the Albaster Box are juxtaposed with the exquisite Josquin Missa Pange Lingua and movements of Schutz’s iconic St. Matthew Passion.

The Heart Starts Singing — June 6, 7, St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church
This diverse program of sacred and secular works spans classical and contemporary and featuring music by Spoleto Chamber series composer-in-residence Reena Esmail, Russian masterworks, and Ugis Praulins’ epic Laudibus in Sanctis. Director of Choral Activities Joe Miller helms a captivating concert brimming with rich sonorities and subtle nuances.
