DePaul Concert Orchestra and Symphonic Choir

 Igor Stravinsky wrote about the relationship between chorus and orchestra in reference to his 1930 Symphony of Psalms, stating that, “the two elements are on an equal footing, neither outweighing the other” in order to create an organic whole. This same ambition will remain when DePaul Concert Orchestra and Symphonic Choir collectively presents Stravinsky’s deeply moving and spiritual work. Also on the program is Edvard Grieg’s Holberg Suite, written in 1884 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of playwright Ludvig Holberg, and Francis Poulenc’s Sinfonietta, a work that is light and full of dance rhythms.
