Song of Songs

Chicago, IL, United States

Bethany United Church of Christ

January 26, 2020 2:00 pm

Our January 26th concert features 2019 Grammy Award-winning tenor Karim Sulayman, acclaimed violist Aurelien Pederzoli, and Dan O'Connell on french horn in a program focusing on one of the most intimate and sensual poems of all time, the Song of Songs. This erotic love poetry at the end of the both the Jewish and Christian Bible (seriously though, what is it doing there?!) has inspired centuries of composers from the middle ages to today, and we'll offer works from Caccini to Britten exploring this unabashedly lush text.
