DETROIT: A METAMORPHOSIS
A Place of Hope for All People
In light of so much recent tragedy and violence in our country and city, the spring concert program is a creatively configured musical statement. Because all acts of tragedy and injustice echo in the minds and hearts of Metro Detroiters today, the program lifts up a representative sampling of universal experiences for reflection. Starting with musical movements from the Mozart Requiem, the Gorecki Symphony #3, and the Rutter Requiem, as well as moving readings by Metro Detroit residents, the program moves powerfully, both musically and topically, toward a new vision for the future, to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World” – a wish of universal hope, prayer, love, peace, and gratitude for our earthly home and for all people – to create a new world and a new Detroit.
“This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.” –Leonard Bernstein
