The Hope of Loving, written by Santa Fe Desert Chorale's popular 2016 Composer-in-Residence Jake Runestad gives title to this program. Pianist Nathan Salazar and a string septet from the Santa Fe Symphony join the Santa Fe Desert Chorale in performing John Corigliano's Fern Hill. Set to a poem by Dylan Thomas, Fern Hill recalls a time that was "young and easy." Tarik O'Regan's Triptych rounds out the program celebrating today's leading composers.
Pre-concert Lecturer: Dr. Matthew Tresler, Assistant Music Director, Santa Fe Desert Chorale; Academic Chair of Music and Director of Vocal Music at Irvine Valley College.
