Dear friends of GHOSTLIGHT,
I'm pleased to invite you to our spring concert, which holds at its center The Song Among Us, a new work by composer Moira Smiley who blends folk, classical, and jazz styles with movement and improvisation, resulting in a truly original and immersive experience. Together we will be exploring our shared joys and sorrows through a musical structure that is loosely based on two ceremonies of transformation—the five movements of a Mass and the shape of a meditation or therapy session.
We will be joined by special guests
- The Reverend Kate Malin in the role of speaker
- Mary Gatchell on piano and
- Galen DeGraf on percussion
In addition, we'll perform several shorter works by other contemporary composers, including David Lang's "again," Jake Runestad's "Fireflies," Blake Wilson's "Caedmon's Hymn," and Jaakko Mäntyjärvi's "Pseudo-Yoik."
The concert takes place at Christ's Church Rye, and can be easily reached via Metro North if you are coming from the city.
In the spirit of connection and communion, a wine reception will follow the performance.
Saturday, March 11th, 7:00 PM
Christ's Church Rye (2 Rectory Street, Rye, NY)
Tickets can be purchased directly here.
We hope to see you there.
With spring greetings, craving more light and warmer days,
Dr. Evelyn DeGraf
