Easter is the central celebration of the Christian Church and has inspired magnificent music and art through the centuries. Although primarily a religious festival, the Easter story has also inspired beautiful secular music and art. Come and enjoy this mixture of great celebratory music and art inspired by the ideas of resurrection, new birth, spring, and a sense of the numinous. The music and art presented will range from the Middle Ages to today and include Gregorian Chant, arias, overtures, and choruses – a wonderful blend of vocal and instrumental art accompanied by appropriate illustrations.
