"Of Heaven and Earth." The concert title offers such promise that one has only to read the program listings and know a bit about Madrigalia and Cordancia to know it will be a special evening. The program will include works for small orchestra and chorus by Vaughan Williams ("Flos Campi"), Mendelssohn ("Kyrie in D Minor"), and Brahms ("N#nie"). The real treat will be the performance of Arvo P#rt's "Cantique des Degrès." Beethoven may have said God was shouting in his ears, but I'd be willing to present the case that it's Part (b. 1935) who can actually hear the voices of the heavens. Madrigalia, directed by Lee Wright, and Cordancia, with co-artistic directors Pia Liptak and Kathleen Suher, both seek to present high quality, innovative concerts with artistic excellence. If it looks this good on paper, it should be a heavenly concert to attend.
The concert takes place Saturday, June 1, at 8 p.m. at Kilbourn Hall, 26 Gibbs St. $15, $5 students. 454-2100, madrigalia.org.
