For the first concert of its 24th season, The Esoterics will celebrate the centennial of African-American composer, Ulysses Kay. Kay's choral work includes settings of Psalms, revolutionary texts, Christmas carols, wartime poems, verses by Shakespeare, Lincoln, Teasdale, Dunbar, as well as folk-songs, fiddle-tunes, and sea shanties. Kay is one of the most under-sung composers of the American Neoclassic era, and this concert will be the first time that these works will be performed together.
