I AM MOVED BY THOSE LISTENERS who have told me that St. Martin’s Chamber Choir concerts provide a brief interval of tranquility in hectic lives otherwise characterized by the distraction of noise, frenetic activity, and busy-ness. The harmonies created by our professional voices somehow pull the frayed threads of our existence into accord. The beautiful resonances vibrate deeply in the subconscious, drawing the spirit into a place of profound concord. And the echoes of ancient and modern voices reverberate in the mind, restoring a sense of wholeness and peace. These powerful images have stuck with me as I have assembled the pieces that make up our 2016-17 season, and I have titled the season Sound and Silence in response. I invite you to peruse the entries on the Concerts page, and claim for your own the tranquility and beauty of this coming season by purchasing season tickets – your passport to serenity and calm in a world grown increasingly disquieting. ■
