When Wendell Berry seeks a balm for despair in the titular poem of our concert, he follows the wood drake and the great heron. So, too, do we attend to the birds in our second concert, searching for consolation. Our program discovers Carlos Guastavino's confused dove in "Se equivoco la paloma," Charles Villiers Stanford’s elusive muse in “The Blue Bird,” and Caroline Shaw's home-seeking birds in "and the swallow." The program will also include Peteris Vasks' ethereal "Plainscapes," and works by Eric Whitacre, Abbie Betinis, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and the eponymous “The Peace of Wild Things,” by Joan Szymko.

In person at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church and streaming online. Visit our website for tickets and livestream links.
