50th Anniversary Season Finale: Masterworks Old & New
Saturday, May 11
Imago Dei Community Center 1302 Ankeny St. Portland, OR 97214
"Conductor and artistic director David De Lyser leads the choir in the last concert of their 50th season, performing Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, Haydn’s Te Deum, works by Handel, Bach, and Mozart, and the world premiere of a new work by Ola Gjeilo composed for CAE’s 50th anniversary.
Beaverton native Lauridsen and hot young choral darling Gjeilo are the highlights here: both composers write deliriously beautiful music that walks the lovely line between newer-than-new and older-than-God." - Oregon Arts Watch
