Our 32nd Season: A New Awakening
Our 2022-23 season is titled “A New Awakening” with good reason.
First, it’s CSC’s first “normal” season in the post-Covid environment, after two seasons of virtual online concerts and masked performances. Deep appreciation to everyone who stuck with us through the past two years.
Second, this season’s programs feature works to awaken and inspire all of us. These include beloved folk songs, spirituals and a modern choral piece featuring texts on the wonders of nature from classic American writers.
Third, we’re performing major works by three American woman composers (one living Pulitzer Prize winner and two significant historical figures) — viewing their contributions through a more modern lens that, hopefully, elevates their contributions to the level they ought to be.
We’re excited to embark on this new season, and hope you’ll join us! You can learn more about each performance through the links below.
