Fall 2019 Program

  • “Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” – J.K Rowling, via Albus Dumbledore

           Tucson Masterwork’s Chorale Fall program, Sing Darkness to Light, expresses the power of music to illuminate even the darkest of struggles. With texts from Anne Frank’s diaries, the Requiem mass, singer/songwriter Dolly Parton and others, the program weaves through topics of war, violence, and death, emerging in the hope of a better tomorrow. Musical highlights include Schütz’s Die mit Träenen säen, Stroope’s Dies Irae, and Gjeilo’s Luminous Night of the Soul, along with selections by Mozart, Ticheli, Paulus, and more. TMC’s new Artistic Director, Angelica Dunsavage, hopes that this program may serve the community in providing a musical lighthouse to all who need reassurance and strength.
