The magnificent Carmel Bach Festival Chorale takes the Sunset Center stage for an evening of music inspired by the seasons.

"The program is related to Saturday night's Creation concert," said associate conductor Andrew Megill. "The music is about the creation story in Genesis, especially the markers of time (sun, moon, and stars, and the seasons of the year). It is a varied program from Medieval secular song (as an audience sing-along!) to Brahms to an avant-garde piece about the sun, with Copland's choral masterpiece ("In the beginning") as a centerpiece."

Mezzo-soprano soloist Meg Bragle joins the Chorale for the Copland. The Chorale is considered one of the finest professional chorales in the nation - come hear why!
