Thanks to you, our subscribers and supporters, our just completed 20th Anniversary Season was a rousing and memorable success!
We turn 21 as an ensemble this season – a time many see as representing a “Coming of Age.” Many of the concerts I have programmed for 2014-2015 reflect this idea – the first two, in fact, use “recycled” concert titles of popular concerts from previous seasons (“Music of the Tsars” and “The Art of Imitation”). This season’s holiday concert, “A Cambridge Christmas” also draws for its inspiration from last season’s very popular “A Salzburg Christmas.” In the spring, we try some new things however – “Take One” is an experimental mixture of a concert and a recording session (Volume 2 of The A Cappella Masses of Henri Hardouin); “Take Two” features two distinguished professional choirs – the Santa Fe Desert Chorale and St. Martin’s – sharing the concert stage; in April we delve into uncharted musical territory with a commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and President Lincoln’s tragic assassination, singing both Civil War-era music, as well as more recent works that refer to the period. And finally, we revisit that masterpiece which comprised our very first recording, the William Byrd Mass for 4 Voices – now as an ensemble and a director who have themselves “Come of Age,” and therefore, hopefully, with a performance that is informed by this greater maturity.
Among the many benefits of buying a season ticket are two you won’t want to miss:
1 – Subscribe by July 31st and you will receive a “Season Sampler” DVD, containing video and audio highlights from the 2013-2014 season. This is an opportunity to enjoy St. Martin’s from the comfort of your favorite chair, with views from several cameras placed around the performance venue, including one focused on the conductor.
2 – Buy a Full Season Subscription (either Premium or General Admission seating) and for the Take One/Take Two concert pair, you receive both concerts for the price of one! This is an unprecedented offer from St. Martin’s Chamber Choir!
Season subscription tickets for St. Martin’s 2014-2015 season are available by completing a paper order form (click HERE) and mailing it in or by calling us at 303-298-1970. Single concert tickets will be available through the website or over the telephone around September 2014.
