During the blue nights of winter, Choral Arts Northwest presents music that captures the magic of this season,
warming our spirits with music that invokes imagery of night and light, feelings of joy and peace. Music includes a rich
variety of cultural traditions, marking solstice, the beginning of the Festival of Lights, and Las Posadas, with music
from Mexico, Argentina, and Venezuela. This concert features Reena Esmail’s new work, The Winter Breviary, which
traces a journey through the solstice and combines new texts by Rebecca Gayle Howell with Hindustani raags for the
night and morning light hours. Music by Northwest composers Emily Lau, Andrew Jacobson, and Katerina Gimon
capture a spirit of wonder, and interludes for piano and oboe seamlessly weave together this concert experience.
