Byrds and Bees

Byrds and Bees

With Jon Washburn, conductor

Our Founder and Conductor Emeritus presents choral favourites, but with a slightly misleading concert title. There is music by Byrd and “three Bs” — Brahms, Britten, Bernstein — but there is nothing naughty going on! There is sacred music, plus delightful music about nature. And we’ll present the world premiere of a commission from Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds.
