Light is an integral part of life, from governing our daily habits and cycles to providing nourishment, warmth, and protection. But what happens when light is taken away or even restored? We all have experienced our own personal ‘sunrises’ or ‘twilight hours’. There are even moments in our lives when we recognize the impact of vision in new ways.
Seasoned masterpieces like Richard Strauss’ Traumlicht and Franz Schubert’s Die Nacht, highlight Cantus’s 2017-18 tour program, Discovery of Sight which also includes modern gems such as Eric Whitacre’s Lux Aurumque, Einojuhani Rautavaara’s The Morning Comes, and a world premiere by Gabriel Kahane (commissioned for Cantus by Chorus America). But at its heart, Discovery of Sight revels in the mystery, science, and poetry of what it means to truly ‘see’.
