Conceived in connection with Collection Ensemble, the recent re-installation of UMMA's historic Apse, this program of sacred and spiritual music weaves together radiant sonorities and shimmering timbres that play on the installation's celebration and critique of community, faith, and the spaces that hold us. Led by SMTD Director of Choirs, Professor Eugene Rogers, the U-M Chamber Choir presents a concert with works from around the globe, including a world premiere by Brehm Prize winner, SMTD composition graduate student Ari Sussman. Vera Grant, UMMA Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and curator of Collection Ensemble, will join Rogers to further illuminate the threads of connection between art and music.
